'A six part series by artist Bram Thomas Arnold - taking the form of a journey through place, time and subjectivity. This week: Recording Outrage - less of a warning than a prophecy of doom: by the end of the show we’ll have uncovered the work of photographers Felicity Hammond and Polly Tootal amongst other artists whose works describe, articulate and respond to the built environment and the legacy of architectural critic Ian Nairn. Featuring texts by Nairn, Hammond, Tootal and Tacita Dean.'

Group exhibition with works by Felicity Hammond, Lawrence Lek and Laura Yuile

In a society obsessed with the visual, there is an increasing tendency to mistake good images with good architecture. Perfect renderings printed on glossy billboards have not only colonized global cities, but are also used to approve, evaluate and sell new construction projects. These digitally constructed, imagined landscapes become real before reality: their shiny presence merges with the existing urban environment, masking the raw construction sites they overlook and forming a representation of a future city in citizens’ minds. And when construction terminates, finished buildings imitate the aesthetics of digital architecture, leading to a hyper-real experience of physical space, as well as a fixed idea of what life in the city should look like.

Capital Growth: exhibition text, Fotomuseum Winterthur

In reference to the unending number of walls surrounding construction sites and the large-format advertising surfaces in public space that bear promises of a utopian tomorrow, Felicity Hammond creates her own dys/functional visual worlds through the use of collage. Like artists associated with the Pictures Generation, such as Barbara Kruger, Jenny Holzer and Mark Tansey, Hammond expresses herself through the visual language of advertising and transposes the postmodern discourse on images into the current era. Her apocalyptically charged images that recall historical paintings cleverly assume the form of their surroundings, asserting themselves in a context. They have a carrier medium and are based on a certain materiality. Through their sheer size they overwhelm viewers and make use of a range of compositional tricks to create an overpowering effect. Capital Growth sends an ambivalent message: the work promises growth but shows decay; the installation refers to concrete places while allowing indistinct objects to sink into them like quicksilver.
