Q: If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be?
With my father.
Q: What is the most valuable thing you own?
My heart. There was an interview with Antonio Banderas after he had a heart operation. In it he says that before the operation a nurse told him that from now on he will be sad. He asked what she meant, if she meant melancholic or depressed, she said no, SAD. She told him anyone who gets operated on the heart feels sad thereafter. He never cried but after the operation he would cry involuntarily. I just seen his very new film by Almodovar Douleur et Gloire.
Q: Would you want to know the future? Why/why not?
I tell you later.
Q: What song has a personal meaning to you and why?
Nina Simone's "feelings". Anyone will know why after hearing it.
Mariana Hahn’s work poetically interrogates the concept of human fate, storytelling and language through the use of photography, performance and video.
Believing that ‘weaving’ can be a metaphor for self-autonomy, her practice is based on thinking of the body as a bearer of continuously woven narratives and that the human being too takes part in making fate, making story, she understands making story as an active, conscious and physical act. She often uses textiles to take the place of the human body, the textile itself becoming the narrative of a living archive.
