Charlotte Haywood lives regionally in Northern NSW on Bundjalung Country, Australia. She is an experimental interdisciplinary artist that explores themes and practices from pop to the primordial. She creates works that thread disparate narratives of time, culture and place through the use of materiality and motif. She seeks cultural and linguistic nuances of the body and the landscape to decrypt and unfold multi-narratives. She looks to untie hierarchies in light of multiplicity; an act of decolonising the self.
Experimentally trading between the tactile and the digital, form and ephemera- she works across: textiles, sculpture, installation, architecture, film, theatre, landscape, community and ecologies.
Haywood has worked inter-culturally; interdisciplinary and collaboratively in remote Australia, Vanuatu, Thailand and Indonesia, having also completed residencies in India, Peru and Thailand.
