Opening Night: Thursday January 29th 6-8pm
Sentimental Jamboree is a playful exploration of junk – the discarded, unwanted and forgotten trinkets that define past experience. In this series created for Mailbox Art Space, Hawkins reimagines the vast array of these mundane leftovers, constructing playful environments that reference subject matter from happy meals to fridge magnets to chocolate bar wrappers.
Hawkins’ practice examines the fabricated, unfixed and imaginative qualities of memory and its relationship to the objects that we come into contact with throughout our lives. She has recently completed her honours year in Fine Arts at RMIT University, and currently lives and works in Melbourne.
