Comprising six black and white photographs, The Antikythera Group represents a group of dramatically excoriated figures that lay on the seabed for approximately 2000 years before being brought to the surface and into the collection of the National Archaeological Museum at Athens. This digitally captured body of work take us heuristically below the surface of the sea continuing Hazewinkel’s longstanding interest in damaged figurative sculpture and his practice of engaging archaeological material as a means of drawing out tensions between the time-worn bodies of antiquity and our own soft ephemeral bodies. 


Comprising seven intimately scaled seascapes, Asgelatas (Mt Kalamos) takes us in another direction, into the sky, to the summit of a marble monolith that juts 450 metres from the surface of sea. This group of images concerns Hazewinkel’s interest in atmospheric conditions. With these seven colour photographs, captured on medium format film, we expereince changing conditions of revelation that arrive with dawn. The word Asgelatas is an epithet meaning The Radiant which is sometimes ascribed to the god Apollo but only ever in specific relation to Mt Kalamos on the island of Anafi where it is believed a healing cult devoted to the deity once existed. 


Together these two bodies of work conjure intimacy, they take us into the sea and into the sky, they drive us into our bodies and into our inner worlds evoking both injury and healing, two states or rebecoming.
