  • Notes: Hawkinson's artistic practice explores the intersection of sculptural form, sound, the body, and temporality through whimsical installation. Suspended upside-down, the present work transforms found materials into an evocative human-like presence. Flexible air ductwork is strung together to form the anatomy of this quirky, headless being. Clad in blue jeans and contemporary attire, he is further animated by an improbable, serpentine pose evocative of the ‘hanged man' tarot card. The reference to the clairvoyant suggests inevitability, uncertainty, new perspective, and growth. Emblematic of Hawkinson's oeuvre, the sculpture is both playful and poignant.
  • Condition: Overall good condition with dust accumulation commensurate with age.
