SOLD OUT IN NORTH AMERICA
The special edition of Property by Felicity Hammond is limited to 25 copies and is presented in a unique slipcase made from polycarbonate sheeting housed in a handmade wooden frame. Each book comes with a limited edition C-type print made exclusively for the books release.
Combining photographic works and installation images of her photo-sculptural and installation practice, Property collides image with object, much like the sites of urban transformation to which Hammond refers. The book is a continuation of her process, placing her source material of found rendered imagery against the sites that they inhabit. Object in form, the cut out pages are used as a device to reveal how the rendered image dictates physical space, and how both of these surfaces are at play in the urban realm. Existing somewhere between a still life and a stage set, it is unclear whether the images in Property are the trace of the object, or the object the trace of the image; the props await direction, just as the built environment is in a constant state of becoming.
