Corin Hewitt (b.1971, Vermont) has a practice that spans sculpture, photography, video, and installation. Hewitt’s work probes history and domestic life, creating narratives and integrating personal biography into the places and objects that he encounters. The resulting constellation of artworks and experiences conflate real and fabricated histories, playing with notions of authenticity and value. Since last spring, Hewitt has been digging trenches, excavating walls, and conducting archival research into the history of his current home/studio in Richmond, Virginia. We will present sculptures that come out of this recent ongoing project titled The Granby Inn, which takes its name from a bar and restaurant that occupied Hewitt’s house from 1932-74.
