Talk. Artist in Conversation: Hayden Fowler with Paula Orrell
Join us outside Hayden's work in the North Galleries to hear him in conversation with CoCA Director Paula Orrell about his work in Precarious Nature.
Hayden Fowler is a New Zealand born Artist, based in Sydney, Australia. He holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of New South Wales Art; Design (formerly COFA) in Sydney, as well as an earlier degree in Biology.
Hayden Fowler’s installations present a surreal, dystopian world, where humans who lose connection with nature, try to reconcile with it. Drawing on contemporary discussions around ecological destruction, genetic modification and the alienation of an increasingly urban society from the natural environment, Hayden’s work depicts places that merge scientific theory with popular culture.
