Artist(s) Felicity Hammond
Venue Space In Between, London
Hammond’s photographic work adopts the pastel hues and image-making methodologies used to describe the proclaimed opulence of city-living, by using a language that has become commonplace within the narrative of urban renewal. But rather than the sun-kissed fantasy described by developers, the viewer is invited into a world which anticipates them in ruin. Images that have been excavated from the virtual space of the rendered architectural proposition lay discarded, whilst the audience navigates through a familiar system to protect them from the upturned city.
Felicity Hammond received a Masters degree from the Royal College of Art in 2014, and is currently undertaking a TECHNE funded PhD at Kingston University.
