What: Friends of the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery presents: The [re] Order of Things – An Artist Talk about recent work by Andrew Hazewinkel
“ I grew up in Mornington; and as a boy used to visit the Mornington Gallery when it was in the small white weatherboard cottage in Vancouver St. I lived just around the corner, on the corner of Queen and Cantebury Streets. In some ways the gallery and its collection played a role in founding my relationship with artmaking”.
Andrew Hazewinkel is a Mornington bred, Melbourne based visual artist who has lived and worked between Melbourne and Rome for the past decade working with photography, moving image, sculpture & installation. He draws from fields as diverse as geology, archaeology, art history, social anthropology and surrealism. He exhibits widely across Australia and Europe. In this presentation he will use examples of his recent work to explore how the psychological correspondence between memory, material and the body. Recent work investigates connections between the broken figures of classical sculpture and our contemporary realm. He examines objects created in other times; providing a means of understanding and commenting on social aspects of our time.
