Hannah Imlach

Hannah Imlach is a Scottish visual artist working predominantly in sculpture. Her transient and site-specific works respond to specific landscapes or recent development in scientific understanding and often focus on environments threatened by changing climate. The objects she creates are designed to be activated by a participant and often reference recognizable forms, acting as shelter, jacket, kite or turbine.


Since graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in 2011, Hannah Imlach (b.1989, Irvine, Scotland) has focused on site-specific residencies and commissions, particularly those which offer opportunities to work directly with scientists and environmental researchers. Recently completed projects include the On Energy residency exploring renewable energy at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Canada and a year-long Leverhulme Trust residency with marine biologists at Heriot-Watt and Edinburgh Universities. Hannah is current artist-in-residence with the Peatland Partnership (RSPB) creating artwork in response to peatland ecology and restoration in Caithness and Sutherland.
