Visual artist Magda von Hanau’s ‘Reminiscence’ series is a deep exploration and interpretation of fragmented moments from memories. Anchored by the themes of time and space, the artist delves into a more conceptual framework, acutely exploring and experimenting with the motifs of identity, memory, and loss. The subject matter incorporating children, architecture and nature are perceptively assembled and juxtaposed to capture, freeze and render visible stories that transcend, time, space and memory. The series’ palpable nostalgia for the past is paradoxically expressive of the present as well as the future. Through form and symbolism, this body of work regards unconscious repetition, imitation, and survival. Viewers are invited to reach across chronological and physical boundaries to reflect on the universal themes and personal experiences inspire by ‘Reminiscence’.

  • Visual artist Magda von Hanau has spent her life a devotee and disseminator of beauty in its many forms.

    Born and raised in Barra Bonita, a bucolic countryside municipality of São Paulo, Brazil, von Hanau forged an early connection with nature before embarking as a teenager on a lustrous modeling and performance career. A prominent fixture on Europe's finest fashion runways and in magazine editorial pages, she found her deep-rooted passion for beauty and art continue to blossom next on the stage - acting in the theater and excelling at improv and interpretation. Von Hanau became well known as an actress on Italian television screens before she enrolled in art school, applying her natural talent and experience living in the world's most historic arts and culture capitals into developing her own visual language.

    ​Uniquely, her work today takes these influences into the domain of drawing, photography, installations, and sculpture; spanning movements, mediums, and cultures. Influences on von Hanau's practice include nature, feminism, history, the visceral and the overall transcendence of life. Anchored by the themes of time and space, she delves into more conceptual frameworks, acutely, exploring and experimenting with the motifs of beauty, identity, loss, deconstruction and of fragmented moments from juxtaposed to capture, freeze and render visible stories that transcend time and space, and break down the way we see the world around us.

    ​Fast gaining recognition on the world stage, von Hanau's work has been featured in several galleries, at numerous exhibitions, highlighted as public works and included in several prestigious private collections. Many of her works have been featured in top international media outlets including Architectural Digest Italia, Elle Decor, Departures, Casa Vogue Brasil, Robb Report, and elsewhere.
