99 Loop is delighted to be exhibiting work by Hannalie Taute.
Midnight visits to graveyards
aren’t required for conjuring monsters.
They are always with us.
Permanently stored in our brains as a form of false memory
deposited for future use by priming stimuli of our culture.
Minutes to Midnight is a continuation into my investigation of fear, which in turn led me to time and eventually to the meaning behind the words. “Minutes to Midnight” refers to the symbolic clock used by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. This clock represents the countdown to a potential global catastrophe and references this catastrophe as “Midnight”. In turn, Midnight reminded me about the the clock in all the fairytales striking 12 and the magic disappears.
