About the artist

Felicity Hammond's special edition print Blue back is a part of the images that was commissioned for Unseen Amsterdam 2019 City Expo.
This edition was created as part of an exclusive offer for the Dutch newspaper Het Parool's readers which we are now pleased to announce is open for the public. Blue back will be available for purchase on our online shop for a limited period during the entire month of October.

Parallel to being exhibited at Unseen Amsterdam, the series A Global Sense of Place by Felicity Hammond was shown on advertising pillars throughout Amsterdam from 9 - 22 September 2019. Through this project, viewers were able to re-enter the cityscape that it seeks to critique. Commissioned by Unseen, the project reflects the artist’s fascination with digitally-rendered architectural propositions. It addresses the material collision between these quasi-photographic images and local urban realities.

The role of architectural renderings in globalising our cities is a theme that has run through Felicity Hammond’s work for some time. In A Global Sense of Place, Hammond draws attention to the failures of these computer-generated advertisements, once they come into contact with the grimy, weatherbeaten cityscape.

“Something strange occurs when the image of the future landscape meets its proposed site. The unwieldy, grimy, littered city doesn’t fit within the glossy dreamscape of contemporary living, made all the more obvious when these surfaces collide.”
Felicity Hammond

“The battle between the powerful, speculative image and the city from which it grows are at the forefront of our urban encounters.”

The work of Felicity Hammond (b. 1988, England) is concerned with the rapidly changing urban landscape of her hometown, London. Photography, sculpture and installation are all tools with which the city is reimagined by the artist, who prints her images on an inventive array of materials, such as acrylic, rubber, wood and concrete. Particular attention is paid to the tension between the city’s industrial past and its continuous redevelopment, which Hammond explores by digitally manipulating photographs, which mimic and subvert those used in advertisements by luxury housing developers. Her most recent work considers the influence of digital technology on the global image of the city, whilst reflecting on the local history of London City Island.
