Sophia Whitney Hewson

DIVIDED SUBJECT

25 May – 27 June 2021

Opening Saturday 19 June 2021, 3 – 5pm

EXHIBITION TEXT

For ‘Divided Subject’, Hewson creates a body of work designed to exist in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.  Bronze sculptures – one of the most durable human made materials – are built to be exhumed as relics of a time when Covid-19 ravaged, autocrats ruled, and Black Lives Matter marches erupted worldwide. All works were produced through 2020 COVID lockdown. The title is a reference to Hewson’s psychoanalytic training and the notion of a sudden unconscious eruption.
