In Endless forms Beka Hannah uses Contemporary craft techniques and installation practices to celebrate the natural world and its varied forms.
Beka uses obsessive craft techniques such as crochet and knitting in large scale installations incorporating light to draw attention to often overlooked or undervalued indicator species.
These biological species or sentinel organisms can be used as an early warning of ecological unrest.
“There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”

D11@Docklands is an artist-led exhibition space that features curated exhibitions that support an interdisciplinary approach to contemporary art practice. We offer a space where artists are encouraged to create and exhibit works of art outside their traditional media, to actively pursue collaborations and to extend their practice.
Commissioned by the City of Melbourne, MAB Corporation and Places Victoria, Docklands Spaces is a pilot initiative by Renew Australia to activate some of the currently underutilised spaces in Docklands through incubating short-term uses by creative enterprises and independent local initiatives.
We are proud to have been chosen as one of the selected participants.
The key people operating D11@Docklands are Michael Carolan, Beka Hannah, Caitlin Telford and Leonie Connellan.
