The Illusion of Control
28 May to 3 July 2011
Anita Haywood explores the Human Condition through photography, painting, film, installation and sculpture in this solo exhibition that questions the ways in which we attempt to take charge of our fate. Haywood says, We like to believe that we have control over our lives. But have we? We hone skills to cope with a contemporary society, but events develop out of our jurisdiction and we can only respond, particularly in an accident, battle or a natural disaster. Even when planning our own funeral, nothing is guaranteed. Control is inevitably out of our hands.
