Making Space: Sculptural Murmurings

Hazel Reeves

Archive Artist Residencies & Projects (6 September to 10 September 2021)
Hazel is best known for creating bronzes for the public realm, but is using her time at Fabrica to explore other aspects of her sculptural practice: movement and sound in space. And to develop her practice towards one that is more collaborative and transdisciplinary.

Every year Fabrica makes its space available to artists to test new ground in their practice, opening up the possibility to use the space in imaginative ways and experiment with new ways of working. Whilst the pandemic has restricted the number of artists we were able to work with this year we’re delighted to be able to host a work-in-progress by artist Hazel Reeves.

“At heart I’m a sculptural choreographer – sometimes choreographing stories in bronze, sometimes creating soundscapes to inspire movement. During this Making Space residency, I will be developing a sculptural approach to expressive dance and movement, and questioning the norms of how dancers should look and move.

I’ll be experimenting with a group of dancers and using soundscapes, to create unique bird-like, yet human murmurings that cyclically fragment then unite. I will be working with disabled and non-disabled participants to explore different physicalities and their expression through movement. Other visual, sound and movement artists will also be working with me over the residency. And I will be using the bird soundscapes that I have been recording throughout this year during my residency at Knepp Estate”.

Sculptural Murmurings is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
