AISLING HEDGECOCK
‘If space has boundaries, is there another space outside those boundaries?’
- Bernard Tschumi, Architecture and Disjuction, 1994

Hedgecock’s recent works include sculptural objects centring upon the phenomena of the
everyday, the alchemy of packaging materials; polystyrene beads, cardboard, and glue.
The large-scale work ‘Saracen’ (2006) references a medieval colloquialism of the ‘sarsen’
stone. Pre-historic monoliths looming on the plains of the South-West England were
considered suspicious interlopers by the human inhabitants of the time.

These sculptures exist in a bizarre state of paradox. The nature of the everyday material
is occupied in the absurd abundance between the rationale of permanence and that of
temporality. Of neither flesh nor stone.

The physical nature of the sculptures arouses a sense of fragmentation, not dissimilar to
a diver entering a pool of water. Another world of uncharted and untold spaces.
