Andrew HAzewinkel
  


Andrew Hazewinkel’s work manifests at the intersection of lens-based and sculptural practice through which he considers relationships between the psychological conditions embodied in damaged ancient figurative sculpture and our own ephemeral bodies. 

More broadly, his interests concern the contemporaneity of ancient material culture, his photo archive and museum collection projects consider the ways in which the materiality of objects (and place) are caught up with the very human act of remembering.

Melding traditional forms of scholarship with studio processes he creates and configures objects and images as a means of considering how the deep past is entangled with the immediate present. Often explorations of hidden or buried histories his works reveal the contemporary social legacies of ancient stories, archetypes and objects questioning dominant historical narratives and how the pulse of the past might be considered a future shaping force.

He makes photographs, objects, installations, exhibitions and books.
