No Land In Particular
25th June 2010 to 14th August 2010
No Land In Particular was an exploration of fictional landscapes using fictional texts as both object and line. Hawkins’ cartographic intervention created a three dimensional map where recycled book sculptures drew lines that sometimes seemed to follow the gallery’s contours but also had a tendency to meander.
The geography of No Land In Particular was both real and imagined; the physical act of ’seeing’ disrupted. The result: a world interwoven with literary and physical illusion. Yvette Hawkins is an artist and writer from Newcastle upon Tyne. She makes tactile, engaging and textural sculptures and installations that transform everyday usable and familiar materials into objects that explore suggestion and secrecy.
