LIT FROM THE TOP: Sculpture Through Photography

2015


CENTRE FOR CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY 

MELBOURNE

Curated by Sarah Wall and Laura Lantieri Lit From the Top: Sculpture Through Photography investigated ways through which sculptural and photographic practices intersect. Traversing historic, modern and contemporary conceptions of art history, the exhibition drew together seven artists whose range of subject and approach to image making articulates a common emphasis on materiality and form, surface and volume.

Hazewinkel's contribution to the exhibition, 7 Portraits (after Niccolò) studies in collective resilience (2015) comprised two sets of seven gelatin silver prints made with the same set of 10 x 8 inch negatives. The images are portraits of sculptural portraits made by Hazewinkel. They document a group of seven versions of the same subject recast by the artist employing a process of intentional mould misalignment. The larger prints measure 39.5 x 31 cm, the dimensions of the smaller prints is same as the negatives, 10 x 8 inches, or 25.4 x 20.3 cm.

Participating artists include Paul Adair, Arini Byng and Georgia Hutchinson, Andrew Hazewinkel, Fleur Van Dodewaard, Stéphanie Lagarde, Stein Rønning.
