About Lou Hazelwood


 I approach my work, research and curatorial practices from interests often found in the overlap of distinctly differing approaches or methodologies which enable new responses. I have many years experience of exhibiting both regionally, nationally and internationally whose work takes many forms and responses from sound pieces, text, film, installation, performance and image based. I’m always interested in layered imagery, text and sound, creating palimpsests for the viewer. I investigate how our experiences, personal and cultural, and technologies, historical and contemporary, influence our experience of memory and forgetfulness.
