Biography

Rooted in a strong belief in the transcendence of objects, Hayden Dunham creates atmospheric activity with mysterious, clouding vapors and kinetic sculptures that respond and react to their environments. The sculptor and installation artist works between Brooklyn and Los Angeles, and her practice is grounded in extensive research, which has included geology, molecular biology, and chemistry, along with site visits to chemical plants and volcanoes. In the way the human body ingests and incorporates chemicals it comes into contact with, Dunham’s sculptures combine in the manner of chemical reactions, rather than collage, allowing for a new organicism to emerge. Dunham’s interest in materiality and reactivity relates back to the body, and the chemical interference and infusion of minerals, toxic waste, and pharmaceuticals.
