Steve Turner is pleased to return to Enter Art Fair, Copenhagen with a solo booth by Halifax-based Hannah Epstein. Her exhibition, See You in Hell, features all new hooked rugs depicting her central characters of Superchill and Freakout Girl who find themselves in hell and heaven respectively. They are surrounded by monsters that stem from Epstein’s study of folklore, pop culture and internet memes. While Superchill takes everything in stride, even in hell, Freakout Girl is melting down in heaven.
Epstein grew up in remote Nova Scotia and later went to college in even more remote Newfoundland where she studied folklore at Memorial University of Newfoundland (2009). After getting her MFA at Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh (2017), she added conceptual rigor to her practice and became, as she calls herself, “a feminist folklorist of the internet age.” She has had three solo exhibitions with Steve Turner, Los Angeles (2018, 2019 & 2020).
