Mix and Match City at Hazelhurst (dining room)

Tracey Clement, ‘Mix and Match City,’ 2020, laser cut recycled cardboard, tape, glue, dimensions variable. Installed in the dining room of the cottage at Hazelhurst, August 2020.

Another photo shoot of Mix and Match City in a domestic setting, this time in the dining room of the Hazelhurst ‘cottage.’

Mix and Match City can be seen in the group show THE HOME at the Hazelhurst Arts Centre until 8 November 2020.
