Exhibition untangles ‘entangled’

Tweed Shire Council

For the past 10 years, Northern Rivers-based artist Charlotte Haywood has been exploring ideas across time, people and place, investigating ancient and emerging living systems in light of biodiversity and coexistence.

Her new exhibition Entangled will be on display at Tweed Regional Gallery until 28 November 2021.

Haywood works across a diverse range of mediums, including woven textiles, sculpture, installation, experimental architecture, film, theatre, sound, taste and linguistics.

Her latest project Here + Now (2021), created for the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens, will be included in the exhibition. Featuring bamboo and neon pink signs, the work raises the question: what are the ‘signs’ in the landscape?

Haywood references the Indigenous calendar plants, which for thousands of years have been used to signify oncoming seasons through bloomings, migration or fruitful indicators in the landscape. She describes the work as a “whacky blend of pop botanica, utopia and phenomena”, highlighting the authority of Indigenous ecological knowledge.

Gallery Director Susi Muddiman OAM said she was excited to host the exhibition.

“Charlotte is an exciting contemporary artist whose practice is incredibly layered and diverse,” Ms Muddiman said.

“I’ve no doubt visitors will become immersed in the tactile and thought-provoking nature of this exhibition.”
