    Exhibition: EAF15: 2015 Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition, 2015

    Inclusions, 2015

    Marine grade Styrofoam, concrete

    Dimensions variable

    Davey Hawkins' Inclusions is a low-lying, undulating installation that follows the topography of park-scape with an arrangement of cast cement vessels. Each vessel is formed and broken apart by Hawkins's collection of marine Styrofoam - synthetic blue foam that never degrades and continuously seeps into waterways, washing onto shorelines. Sited at Socrates Sculpture Park, a former illegal dumpsite and landfill, these cement blocks suggest that the archive of human intervention with the natural world is insoluble, and possibly endless.
