Space In Between is delighted to present Public Protection, Private Collection; the first solo show of London-based artist Felicity Hammond. Using stolen ballast from local sites of luxury development and the raw materials associated with construction and regeneration, Hammond’s new installation addresses the complex make-up of the urban fabric.

Using a language that has become commonplace within the narrative of urban renewal, Hammond’s photographic work adopts the pastel hues and image-making methodologies used to describe the proclaimed opulence of city-living. 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.

Artist ( Description ): 

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. She has been a finalist and nominee for numerous awards including: Foam Talent (2016) British Journal of Photography’s International Photography Award (winner – 2016), and Saatchi New Sensations (2014). Her work has been exhibited widely and most recently at Tate Modern in collaboration with Self Publish Be Happy, London 2016; Somerset House for Photo London with The Photographer’s Gallery, London 2016; and Saatchi Gallery, London 2015.
