Hannalie Taute
'Shy Girl', Unique contemporary soft sculpture




For more than a decade Hannalie Taute has primarily focused her attention on working with found objects, especially toys. Six years ago she began experimenting with rubber, particularly inner tubes, and in 2012 she incorporated embroidery into the works. By using traditional embroidery techniques with the unconventional canvas of rubber, her works aim to transform the familiar into the unfamiliar. Taute’s practice subverts the original meaning of objects and by replacing the main characters with herself, or her family members. Taute uses her art to escape into a fantasy world of her own making, the works are the culmination of research into emotion, psychology and fantasy within that world. She finds inspiration in myths, legends, lyrics, literature and especially fairy tales. She is drawn to the universality of these ancient stories which exist all over the world and point to a common humanity, it is often just the title of an original fairy tale that remains, within her works.
