Back in a second
Back in a second second Back in a minute
Back in a minute minute Back any day
any moment any movement
Back when you least expect it Back when you were young Back when you were innocent Back when you were you Back below your neck
Back below your back Back below your butt
Back out Back out Back out
where the sun doesn’t shine,
where the grass no longer grows, where the animals are lifeless, plastic,
reproductions of real animals
Back out Back where
Back down Back on Back in Business, as usual-
where people take a s***
— Hanne Lippard
Hanne Lippard’s (b. 1984 in Milton Keynes, UK) practice explores the voice as a medium. Her education in graphic design informs how language can be visually powerful; her texts are visual, rhythmic, and performative rather than purely informative, and her work is conveyed through a variety of disciplines, which include short films, sound pieces, installations and performance. Hanne Lippard lives and works in Berlin.
