Tim Hawkinson: Mapping The Marvellous
SYDNEY  •  Museum of Contemporary Art  •  Ongoing

Known for his large-scale kinetic and sound-producing works, Los Angeles-based Tim Hawkinson’s intricate and playful constructions engage with the human body and portraiture, incorporating mechanical components and materials such as latex, plastic, cardboard and string. Other works refer to our obsessive human need for order and containment.

Hawkinson’s Sydney show featuress sculptures, photo collages, and drawings from the mid 1990s to the present including a bat created from shredded black plastic bags and twistie ties - as well as inflatable self portraits, monstrous beings and fantastical structures that chatter, whistle, rotate and spin.
