Interview: Hunter Anderson
Luca Curci
talks with Hunter Anderson during THE EXTENDED BODY 2020 at THE LINE Contemporary Art Space.

Hunter has been creative from a young age, crafting, drawing and painting, using items found in nature to produce her works of art. Once given a theme she begins to visualize the piece in its completion and then determines the process of how to bring her vision to life on paper, canvas, video or sculpture. She has always seen and experienced life differently than others and has an ability to find those hidden gems in life and her photographs.

Luca Curci – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
Hunter Anderson –
I was born and live in central Canada. I have been taking photographs since I was 7 years old. I started out using a 35mm film camera and graduated to a digital camera when I was 12 years of age, and now use a Nikon series camera. I have always been encouraged to explore creative arts. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Ottawa in Canada, exploring all mediums, it is difficult to choose just one medium as each idea should be reflected using the medium most suitable to the message of the piece, whether it is on paper, 3 dimensional, printed or viewed on a screen.

LC – What is art for you?
HA –
Reflecting on real life situations at a personal level, observe. People who touch my world, sharing their feelings or situations and I develop it in my own way.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
HA –
A feeling – speaks to the viewer / but everyone experiences art differently because it reflects what they’ve gone through in life and no one has the same thoughts and feelings about it. Connection with it – although not everyone will connect to everything, everyone will connect to a piece.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
HA –
Inspiration – from my life experiences, observations and those that people share. Find the materials in the appropriate size to meet the vision in my head of the piece I am creating.

LC – What are you currently working on?
HA –
I’m currently working on a series of photos around the pandemic and a series of painted records.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
HA –
Extended body – the dancer is moving freely in nature, dancing as if no one is watching although there are six different cameras on and around her. She is dancing to music playing that only she can hear, she appears to be immersed in the song moving gracefully through the grass.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in the society? And the contemporary art?
HA –
Art makes people feel good, helps people to heal, it is a very personal experience, everyone connects to art differently, it can tell a story.
