Hannah Killoh
Tokashiki 2015-2019
Tokashiki is a project that has been ongoing since 2015. While living in Japan, Hannah travelled to Tokashiki, a small island off the coast of Okinawa. Constantly exploring the everyday within fantastic and unfamiliar spaces, she was in her element while visiting Tokashiki. The small island is a paradise yet quiet and residential and so sits very comfortably in that odd yet familiar sense of space. At its heart, Hannah’s work is concerned with the idea of home, the idea of finding common ground in uncommon or unrelatable spaces and places. How do you know you’re home when you’re not sure where or what it is?
After completing her BA hons Photography degree at Edinburgh College of Art, Hannah moved to Japan for three years working as an English teacher. While in Japan she continued to photograph and became increasingly intrigued by the everyday within fantastic, paradise-like or unfamiliar spaces. It was in Japan that she also decided to pursue publication design and came back to Edinburgh in 2016 to complete an MSc in Publishing at Edinburgh Napier University. Since 2017, Hannah has been living and working in Edinburgh as a Publishing Assistant for the National Galleries of Scotland, a Creative Director for Monstrous Regiment Publishing and a photographer. She has been exhibited globally and has been involved in multiple arts publications since 2009.

Olga Kaliszer
Olga Kaliszer lives and works as an artist in Edinburgh. She completed the Master of Fine Art at Glasgow School of Art in 2016.
Using predominantly audio-visual media, photography and printmaking her work explores the way that art can redistribute established patterns of meaning assigned through perceptual experience. The commonplace, often overlooked, ‘everyday’ as subject matter lends itself especially well to this purpose because its very familiarity makes it particularly susceptible to dislocation.
frieze functions in the liminal space between moving image and traditional print. Using the photopolymer intaglio print process to transcribe digital film, the moving image is deconstructed frame by frame to capture, often unnoticed, instantaneous gesture.
Hannah will show in Gallery 1, alongside Olga Kaliszer in Gallery 2.
