HUT “Hermitage” by Ethan Hayes-Chute
Artist Ethan Hayes-Chute lives and works in Freeport, Maine & Berlin, Germany. Through paintings, sculptures, large-scale installations and artist’s books, he explores the ideas of self-sufficiency, self-preservation and self-exclusion as models for living. Hayes-Chute’s hut is an accumulation of stuff, the ephemera of the every day. Its materials are found, stitched together, hand-assembled – chair, desk, table, shaving mirror, and coffee mug furnish the cabin’s primary function to house and sustain.
