Hazel Powell’s first solo show comes a year after graduating from Edinburgh College of Art with a degree
in Intermedia. In February she took up the role of Artist in Residence at Edinburgh College, working alongside
students and staff primarily on the Contemporary Art Practice program.
This new body of work is the culmination of the months spent at the College. Spooling brings together different
elements of Hazel’s practice, utilising film, performance, weaving and printing to talk about commonality and
The work often refers to the quiet corner of the West Highlands where Hazel grew up. Utilising the physical
landscape to talk about the wider themes of individual and collective memory. It is often sparse and allows
for long periods of relative silence, allowing the viewer to add his or her own recollections.
Performance by: Hazel Powell, Lorna Stubbs Davies, Michael Owers, Georgia Sparks and Genevieve Thornton.
