From May 10 to May 27, Metro Arts will be exhibiting Susan Hawkin’s The Remainder. The exhibition features Hawkin’s latest sculptural work and questions how our culture, reliant on rapid production and consumption, can shift to address the environmental realities facing it.
Hawkin’s reclaims domestic and industrial objects to give them a new purpose in life. This humanisation of these objects provides an inquisitive and insightful reconsideration of our future; creating absurd, almost optimistic dystopia, Hawkin’s dismantling and repurposing of outmoded technology is unsettling in its whimsy.
The Remainder opens Wednesday 10th of May and continues until Saturday 27th May. Susan Hawkins will discuss her work at a free Artist Talk on Wednesday 17th of May. Alongside the artist talk will be a performance which considers how movement can be used to tell stories of loss. Through an intuitive process of trust and collaboration, the performance connects objects, stories, and the body.
