In Situ Curator — Cassandra Hard Lawrie

Cassandra Hard Lawrie is a Curator, Sculptor and Installation artist who has exhibited at the Tin Sheds, UWS Gallery, SCA Galleries, Penrith Regional Gallery, Government House and Laperouse Museum. She has been a finalist in the Willoughby Sculpture Prize 09 and UWS Sculpture Award 08. Cassandra recently graduated with a Master of Visual of Arts (Sculpture) from the University of Sydney. As well as being recently appointed as the curator for In Situ 2011, Cassandra has been the curator of Sculpture in the Vineyards (2009-11) – a large annual outdoor sculpture exhibition across six venues in the Wollombi Valley – and is the current curator of Hidden 2011/2012 – the annual Rookwood Sculpture Walk at Rookwood Cemetery.

Teaching across the disciplines of sculpture, art history/theory and experimental drawing, Cassandra has worked in a variety of settings such as TAFE, Pine Street Creative Arts Centre, private tutoring, community workshops and has run an art access practice specialising in teaching art to people with disability, particularly people with autism.

Drawing, wood-working, moulding and casting and resin/fibreglass fabrication form the basis of Cassandra’s art practice. Her sculptural objects are based on representations of the feminine merged with the aesthetic of the museum artefact. Cassandra is currently preparing a body of work for a solo show to be curated by Alison Clark for Willoughby City Council for exhibition at the Incinerator Art Space.
