    This series IO examines the psychological processes behind distorted self-perception of the body, often conditioned by a psychological disorder. It is concerned with the relationship between mental discomfort and the external inescapable boundaries of the body.

    The main focus of this body of work is Hana's own reflection on and perception of the female body, the insecurity and preoccupation, self-hatred and fears leading to various obsessions and alienation of the physical body. Her interest has developed from the ambivalent relationship we may have towards our bodies and body awareness (affected to an extent by the media's idealised vision of the perfect body), to the relationship of the anxious inner states with the actual physical body. Her interest draws on her fascination of such phenomena and upon observing at length the experiences of a female friend who had been undergoing similar states of mind. Her friend's feelings of defamiliarization led to self-hatred that she projected onto her body. Hana has been working with the anonymous models' bodies, in a sculptural and distorted way, whilst their faces and identities remain suppressed. They serve her as objects for her own projections and constructions of the invisible states in relation to the body.

    IO was originally an abbreviation for Inside Out, but written, evokes the two essential signs of the binary numeral system indicating something which does not exist in any physical form or something which exists, yet cannot been seen as such. The images then attempt to bring out something from within the body - invisible yet present.
