Glen Hayward: I Don’t Want You to Worry About Me, I Have Met Some Beautiful People

27 April–9 June 2013

Glen Hayward’s carved, painted wooden sculptures mimic everyday objects. In this show, he represents the classic office cubicle of a white-collar worker. But it's not just any work station. It's Mr Anderson’s from The Matrix. He's clocked out, but leaves behind lingering questions around boundaries between real and illusionary, between virtual and physical, and between individual agency and social control—questions common to Hayward’s practice and the film. The work was created during Hayward’s residency at the Rita Angus Cottage in 2012.
