Tim Hawkinson at the MCA, Museum of Contemporary Art – Sidney
Tim Hawkinson: Mapping The Marvellous
11 December 2007 – 5 March 2008
For his Australian premiere, the MCA in association with Sydney Festival
presents Los Angeles-based Tim Hawkinson, whose ingenious constructions of everyday objects have brought him widespread recognition as one of the most original artists working today.
For his MCA solo exhibition, the artist presents sculptures, photo collages, and drawings from the mid 1990s to the present. It introduces his extraordinary new creations – amoung them a bat created from shredded black plastic bags and twistie ties – as well as inflatable self portraits, monstrous beings and fantastical struct ures that chatter, whistle, rotate and spin.
