Maura Hazelden

Artists statement

My main preoccupations are with the domestic [4.00p.m. tea, a properly set table, a place for everything and everything in its place; her socks always came up to her knees; the cups and saucers should never be stacked; her handwriting was so neat; white and pale collars and cuffs should always be folded in white tissue; why can't you be more like her?] and the land, place; memory and perception. From order to evanescence: solid to vapour: experience to memory.

The forms that I work through are performance/action/live art; photovisual and installation ® sometimes all together; inside; outside: time based work.

Check that your hair is neat under your hat; that your coat lies smoothly over your shoulders; no-one will know what lies underneath.
