Sammy Hawker is an ACT-based visual artist. Her practice examines the methods and protocols of human and more-than-human collaboration when producing works that investigate sites of the Anthropocene.
She is interested in de-centring her position as the artist and breaking open the permanency of the photograph by inviting agents of the site to co-create the work. Through facilitating interaction with more-than-human entities this practice aims to draw attention to and make visible the hidden temporal realities & cross-species entanglements of the site.
Sammy’s practise is grounded in collaborative engagement. When investigating a site she will work closely with Traditional Custodians, scientists, ecologists and regenerative agriculturalists. These engagements assist her in interpreting quantitative and qualitative data as well as developing ecological literacy and a cultural understanding of the site. Cross-disciplinary partnerships illustrate a responsible way of moving forward in an age of environmental crisis.
