Softening borders and subsiding boundaries, Hannah Chris Lomans writes with a propulsive flow, placing themselves beyond any specific genre. As a writer, musician and programme maker at Perdu, Amsterdam, Hannah Chris feels an attraction to fluidity, delicately escorting you towards complete open-mindedness and a captivating utopia. With the artistry of fusing the poetic and prosaic and intimately inspecting the flux between the physical and spiritual, Hannah Chris explores the precarity of identity and the quest for self-discovery in their chapbook Blijf de kou wegstrijken (2020). In Extra Extra no. 20, Hannah Chris illustrates the constant movement of the body in the short story ‘We Who Stayed,’ communicating the incompleteness of the self, the never-ending desire for a language that sufficiently discloses who we are and who we may become.
