• Chevron Hassett

Chevron Hassett’s artwork in the Open Window is a new addition to his on-going project interacting with colonial narratives, specifically histories that have shaped the identity of communities and their landscape.

Chevron states:

"Land and connection to land is essential for the identity and belonging of a people. This exhibition Surveying the Surveyorsituates a young male in the forefront of the composition, as a physical and symbolic response to colonial statues. This installation in the front window of the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery intends to interweave the tensions of land, history and culture and acts as a means to opening dialogue about memorialisation, the values of representation and whose narratives exist in the public space."
