The exhibition will present new works inspired by certain historical figures associated with the site of the caves and the surrounding area of Margate.
Using his signature material of dust, Hazelton has sculpted figures based on some of these people, whilst their pencil-drawn “shadows” depict their lives and legacies. The exhibition will include the 18th-century natural philosopher, science educator, and author Margaret Bryan who - as well as running a girls’ school above the Caves - played a pivotal role in the progression of female science writers in Britain.
