Hannah Hooper of Grouplove has her Los Angeles first solo exhibition
at Subliminal Projects on June 8th, 2019


“Hannah’s work takes a solitary dive that, at once, betrays the pull of gravity and also distorts the vision. It is a dive worth making.” 
- Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio)

Subliminal Projects is pleased to present Oblivion, a debut solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist and musician Hannah Hooper. After a decade of performing as the front-woman and art director of Grouplove, Hooper honors her less-known, visual talents with Oblivion. The exhibition features a series of delicate line-drawings and large-scale paintings on canvas, along with sketches and renderings that are used as visual notes in color and composition, in preparation for her finished works. In conjunction with the opening, an edition of 100 silkscreen prints individually hand-embellished by Hooper will be available, as well as a special surprise performance at Subliminal Projects.

OBLIVION is co-curated by Sonja Teri, founder of PCP.

After graduating with a BFA from Parsons School of Design, Hannah cut her teeth in New York’s Lower East Side art scene during the 2000s, rubbing elbows with some of today’s most notable younger contemporary artists. In 2008, Hooper traveled to Crete for an intensive painting residency with Christian Zucconi, where they soon met the other members of what would become Grouplove.

“Art to me is about understanding your subconscious, and letting it heal, it’s primal, like childbirth.” - Hannah Hooper

A portal into Hooper’s subconscious, Oblivion exhibits intuitive pieces that reveal her emotions and raw instincts as they playfully rise to the surface. Floating bodies, crowded spaces and empty moments draw on Hooper’s personal experiences of being both in the limelight and being isolated. Her work also explores the nuances in her relationships to the post-modern expectations of youth against the backdrop of motherhood. Her practice aims to explore the spaces between the material world and the spiritual world, creating a vocabulary of symbolism all of her own.
