Recent work and exhibitions by Eloise Hawser have investigated material histories, the history of industrial fabrication and used historical advancements in UK manufacturing techniques as a means to create new sculptural bodies and to imagine how sculptural bodies can be constituted and re-configured.
Her works demonstrate an interest in finding personal approaches to industrially fabricating objects while at the same time investigating the inner workings of such mass produced objects and internal structures.
