The Ghost Show
Various Artists
Hazelhurst Cottage, c. 1953
Local Studies Collection, Sutherland Shire Libraries
The Ghost Show featured six leading contemporary artists responding to folklore that the Hazelhurst cottage is haunted. The selected artists all undertook onsite residencies and were introduced to the story of Ben and Hazel Broadhurst, the couple who built the cottage and lived there until their deaths. Their generous property bequest to Sutherland Shire Council led to the birth of Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre in 2000. The artists were asked to respond in some way to this specific local haunting as a starting point for the development of an artwork that also reflected the concerns and methodologies of their own practice as artists.
