Hayden Fowler

Born 1973, Te Awamutu, New Zealand. Lives and works Sydney.


Hayden Fowler creates photographic, video, installation and performance works featuring human and animal subjects in elaborately constructed sets. Much of his work is concerned with the relationship between humans, animals and nature, and our understanding of ourselves as a civilisation and a species. Fowler originally trained as a biologist, majoring in animal behaviour, before undertaking undergraduate studies in art.

Fowler has exhibited widely, including the selected solo exhibitions Your Death, Gallery 9, Sydney (2015); Call of the Wild (Whekau), Michael Reid Gallery, Sydney (2014); New World Order, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand (2013); The Long Forgetting, Dubbo Regional Gallery, NSW (2011); Call of the Wild, Fremantle Arts Centre, Fremantle (2008); and Video Projects, Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu, New Zealand (2007).

Recent group exhibitions include New Romance: Art from Australia and Korea, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul (2015); Wild Side: The Animal in Art, Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery, Lake Macquarie (2014); Among the Machines, Dunedin Public Art Gallery, New Zealand (2013); The Visitor, Black & White Gallery, Brooklyn, USA (2012); Awfully Wonderful, Performance Space, Sydney (2011); The Blake Prize, National Art School Gallery, Sydney (2011); and The Animal Gaze, London Metropolitan University, UK (2009).

Fowler’s work is held in a number of collections, including the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; Artbank, Sydney; Elton John Collection, London; and Dunedin Public Art Gallery, New Zealand.
