Sentinels

14 Sep 2020 - 30 Nov 2020

Catriona Stanton's new work in the Hazelhurst Gardens was created while she was an artist in residence at Hazelhurst.

Sentinels reference the construction of natural architectural forms or makeshift habitats following fire and flood. The organic woven sculptures point to a sustainable future through working with the ubiquitous, resilient and flexible material of bamboo.

The vertical orientation of these human-scale forms and the spacing of I.5m that we have all come to know as social distancing, alludes to the experience of being together yet apart during the world crisis of COVID 19. These skeletal sentinels have a lightness of being. They express our vulnerability of dealing with something so unseen, while being resilient and adaptable.

Catriona Stanton was an artist in residence at Hazelhurst in February 2020 during which time she began producing these forms. Sentinels was commissioned by Hazelhurst Arts Centre.
