Professional Development Residency February 2024

Hopkins is a multimedia artist working between video, collage, drawing, photography, sculpture and installation. She often works site specifcally and this culminates in ephemeral installations. She is exploring artworks that merge folklore with the human form, focusing on menstruation, native plants and rural sites of human made structures. She is interested in making abstract, hybrid connections between non human entities and our human selves, as a way to explore the rural & the urban, empathy for our natural environment & to better understand the human condition.
