Hayden Fowler: Future Distant History

Hayden Fowler is known for his multi-media and experimental works which often take the shape of a set. Colonisation is staged here, fixing our attention on emotional, environmental and physical trauma.

Playing on the senses we are encouraged to contemplate the exploitation of the land, its peoples, stock routes and spirit with an installation comprising photography, a large pile of  ‘sun bleached bones’ cast in polymer plaster and an audio component of a cicada’s song ringing out.

Australia, 2017, plaster, polymer, sound 140 x 100 x 100cm. Commissioned by the New Landscapes Institute for the ‘The Long Paddock’ exhibition, 2017. Courtesy the artist and Artereal Gallery, Sydney
