Caitlin Hazell is a London-based artist and clown college dropout. Their work intertwines the imagined and exaggerated aspects of everyday life with myth, folklore and ritual. 

Their practice highlights the absurdity inherent in social lives and to draw parallels through real and speculative history, making false communities and closely observing the world around them for all its chaos.

Having grown up surrounded by fantasy, in a rural setting enriched with deep folkloric history, the work addresses fear, emotion and experience through non-traditional materials such as beeswax, foam and cardboard. There are photos and materials found mudlarking baked into bread and metalwork cast using a microwave: objects have an afterlife and everything in the work is reused, from costumes made for a performance to silicone red noses worn by exhibition visitors. These assemblages are highly forensic and mock the idea that artefacts are meant for formal display, creating a wobbly, slapdash, awkward, and spontaneous body of work that is still purposeful in the way it pays attention to the world around us.
