Using her voice as raw material, the Norwegian artist Hanne Lippard explores the social forms ruling speech. Her work, in the form of sound and visual statements, autobiographic or from mass medias, probe the female voice as an emancipation or alienation tool, at a time of hyper connectivity.
The female voice has long been one of care (the voice of emotional space, of the domestic), assignment (prophecy, Pythia) or hysteria. Merchandised by modern world’s productivity, she becomes the voice of the machine then that of the tertiary sector - the one of the personal voice assistant : GPS, speakers, voice mails. At a time of anonymization of speech (Twitter) and knowledge (Wikipedia), of an eroticized disembodiment of female voice (podcast, date apps), Hanne Lippard tackles it in an embodied way.

Hanne Lippard presented her work in the following recent personal exhibitions : KW, Berlin (2017), Kunsthalle de Stavanger, Norvège (2018), Goethe Pop Up Institute, Minneapolis (2019), Furiosa, Monaco (2020), MUHKA, Anvers (2021)… ; et collectives : La Loge, Bruxelles(2018), Kunsthalle, Vienne (2018), Centre d’art Albert Chanot, Clamart (2019), RIBOCA, Biennale de Riga (2020), Musée d’art contemporain de Rochechouart (2020), Frac Pays de la Loire (2021), etc.
