Blandford Square

‘43 Houses and a Ford Escort’ presented a set of distinctive modular sculptures and folded maps plotting the 42 homes Hawkins has lived in to date.

A map folding workshop generated the small wall mounted sculptures made from A-Z road maps. Participants included Globe volunteers, a group of students from Newcastle College, plus our director Rashida Davison.


Artist Statement

Hawkins is a British-South Korean artist and writer from Newcastle upon Tyne. She makes tactile, engaging and textural sculptures and installations that transform everyday useable and familiar materials into objects that explore suggestion and secrecy. Her art encourages viewers to become conscious of their surroundings as she works to manipulate how things might be seen, read and heard.
