Sharon Haward

Artist in Hastings United Kingdom

Sharon Haward is an artist with a multi-disciplinary practice that hinges on an exploration of site and sense of place. Her installations and interventions involve the insertion of objects, texts, images and/or moving image into a environment already rich with meaning to create an additional layer of visual narrative. By paying attention to various interpretations of the space Haward aims to create interventions that combine the simultaneity of an embodied experience of the space and the unsteady and haunted landscape of remembered/mis-remembered space.

As well as making work for galleries and museums, Haward has made site responsive installations at a range of historical, vernacular and abandoned sites in the Uk and Europe including a railway station, a Victorian fort, an electricity substation and a fire station.

Haward has a freelance career which includes lecturing, curating, gallery education and working for a range of creative organisations.
