Instagram Account of the Week: Hannah Marshall

Lose yourself in the British artist’s monochrome and mysterious feed.

A black and white aesthetic. Minimalist art. A dreamy and mysterious vibe. These are the defining traits of Hannah Marshall‘s captivating Instagram account, and it’s no wonder: the designer turned visual artist has also dabbled with music video production and united all of her work with a similar monochromatic touch.

MØ. The untamed energy of @momomoyouth is unapologetic and liberated — an extraordinary performer who is always able to show up and be herself in a completely authentic way. The last time I saw her play was in the UK last Spring, whilst working together. This time, was in São Paulo in Brazil to an intimate and equally charged audience. Karen’s background rooted in punk and activism is something I was drawn to when working on her Creative Direction. As a pop artist, it’s refreshing to see the influence of punk so clearly engrained in her as an artist. During an interview she once talked about why she loves punk music, “I want to see something that’s true. The most important thing when we play live is to let go and try to be the music that we’re playing.” With her shows, she says, “You’re not hiding behind anything or hiding behind perfection. Fuck perfection.” When an artist is free on stage, the audience can’t help be infected by the sense of freedom . . . . . . . . . . . _______________________________________________________ #hannahmarshall #hannahmarshallvisualart #visualartist #creativedirector #visualart #blackminimalism #blackminimal #blackandwhite #monochrome #bw #bnw #womeninmusic #music #livemusic #musicartist #documentary #musicphotography #mø #mo #saopaulo #sãopaulo #brazil #cinejoia #trueromance #lightinthedark

Her vision behind the feed didn’t come by accident: Hannah recently told i-D magazine that she gravitates towards a grayscale aesthetic because ‘the poetry and duality of black and white has an unlimited profundity to me.’

The profile is just like a piece of art; a neatly combined text-video-photo grid covering one (sometimes several) powerful and inspiring women at a time like Lauryn Hill, SEVDALIZA and Kelela. She shares a grain of thought followed by a brief video clip and tops it off with a sensually shadowy photo of the person put into the spotlight.

When asked about the women she has been inspired by most, her response is rather simple and full of warmth: ”The women I surround myself with are all strong and beautiful on the inside and outside. Each of them have impacted me and continue to inspire me in their own way and make me stronger.”

SAVAGES. There was something quite special about being at both the first + final shows of the @savagesband tour and seeing it come full circle. It started with an intimate show at The Dome on 03.12.15 and closed with their biggest UK show at Brixton Academy on 25.11.16. I’ve said it before, but they are one of my absolute favourite live bands; raw and uncompromising delivered with undiluted intensity. The immediacy and profound level of intimacy they have with the crowd is incredible to see — here is a moment when Jehnny Beth walked on the hands of the crowd before falling back into their arms . . . . . #hannahmarshall #hannahmarshallvisualart #visualartist #visualart #blackminimalism #lightinthedark #blackandwhite #monochrome #bw #bnw #womeninmusic #music #livemusic #musicartist #documentary #musicphotography #blackandwhitephoto #blackandwhitevideo #brixtonacademy #london #savages #savagesband #jehnnybeth #camilleberthomier #gemmathompson #faymilton #aysehassan #adorelife #adorelifetour

Combined with Hannah’s chosen aesthetic, her work creates a calming, inspiring and all in all badass atmosphere which adds a refined aesthetic to the core message behind women supporting women and female empowerment.
