Hannon is known for creating sculptures in the shape of human-scale wings made out of discarded vintage Bibles, such as a grade two Braille Bible, an 1865 Civil War-era Bible, and a Torah. Hannon’s unspecifiedwork takes emotionally loaded raw materials that were imbued with spiritual and devotional significance and repurposes them for artistic and humanistic ends. “These books were cried on, prayed over, and preached with. They are marinated in so much emotion. I find them in a dilapidated state, about to be thrown out, restore them, and give them new life and new resonance.” In addition to the Bible wing pieces, the retrospective will feature works from 2003 to 2016 in various mediums, including found object sculptures and two-dimensional works on paper.
