Reception, engagement, and participation play an important role in Hannah Weinberger’s works. An abiding interest in 'others' – whether they are receivers or collaborators in her work– underpins her practice. At Vleeshal, Weinberger succeeded to bring harmony to the collective group exhibition Why Patterns, while also allowing the viewer a performative role within the exhibition. The thick, white, echo-absorbing Curtains (2017) that lined the walls and intersect the exhibition space created a supportive sound environment and theatrical playground for each of the works within the exhibition to function and co-exist. Weinberger’s highly visible gesture introduces a set of dialectical relationships explored throughout the exhibition: the relationship between background and foreground, between immaterial (sound) and material (form), and between singular and communal experiences.
