Continuum: The Persistence of Being is Part 3 of Hazewinkel’s multi site installation The Ongoing Remains (3 Parts) commissioned by the Art Gallery of New South Wales for The National 2019: New Australian Art in which the left panel of the triptych was first presented.
These portraits depict the residual material generated by the creation of Part 2 of the project – Withness: A haunting - a 51 minute HD projection in which the artist filmed the mechanical erasure of an edition of casts closely related with the 26 busts which comprised Part 1 of the project – The Emissaries: Keepers of our stories.
