Felicity Hammond’s work addresses the complex make-up of the urban fabric. Using stolen ballast from local sites of luxury development, rendered images from advertising boards and the raw materials associated with construction and regeneration her work seeks to interrupt the aesthetic of luxury and desire – whilst still borrowing some of its vulgarity – to reveal the chaos of the process.
