Anna Hanchett is a visual artist. She received her BFA in studio art and BA in art history from Calvin College, and her MA in fashion studies from Stockholm University. She is currently a PhD candidate in fashion studies at the same institution. Anna’s studio practice addresses the existential conditions of the culturally-unrooted individual. She works in mixed media and in sculpture primarily, referencing and manipulating objects from daily experience to touch on the ephemeral relationships between the body, identity and culture at large. This conceptual framework drives her interest in fashion as well. Anna’s recent research in fashion studies looks at the history and culture of particular articles of clothing to explore fashion's cultural and material interweaving of body, object and identity.
