From the monumental to the modest, Hazel Meyer’s projects range from large installations to small woven tags meant for an audience of one. She explores seemingly disparate yet overlapping preoccupations —intestines and athletics, feminism and the absurd, anxiety and textiles— using scale, language, play, repetition, gentle confrontation and ecstatic immersion. She has collaborated with teens, badminton players, composers, her mother, and artists for projects that are devoted to a forever shifting ratio of endurance, transgression, and laughs, as ways of being in one’s body and the world. Hazel holds an MFA from OCAD University (Toronto), a BFA from Concordia University (Montréal) and her work has been exhibited across Canada and in Europe. In fall 2014 she was the visiting artist at the Embassy of Foreign Artists in Geneva, Switzerland as well as the inaugural artist-in-residence at Scrap Metal in summer 2015. Hazel lives and works in Toronto.
