Hugh Hayden: Border States

Lisson Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Texas-born, New York-based artist Hugh Hayden. This marks the artist’s first exhibition with the gallery and will feature sculpture created from wood indigenous to the United States and Mexico border.

Hugh Hayden’s work investigates natural and artificial means of identification. From early works featuring hair, feathers, tree bark and clothing to recent sculptures created from salvaged Christmas trees, Hayden begins with objects which inherently carry significant associations with societal categorization: race, religion, ethnicity, education, sexuality and the like. Using a rigorous process of sawing, sanding and sculpting, he combines disparate types of wood to create new composite forms which address themes of assimilation and acceptance, and metaphorically disrupt traditional American social context.
