The Studio of...., Mixed Media Installation, 2018
Exhibited for Deptford X, 2018
Inspired by the Francis Bacon Studio in the Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin and other recreated artist studios across the world, I wanted to explore the idea of the artist and the artist studio. How these historical figures are mythologized and a narrative is created through the objects and spaces that they occupied. In this installation I collected items from my own studio, home and placed it within this studio cube. Other artist’s in the studio made donations benefiting from this temporary storage space that I provided. A museum rope and pole and text listed the contents, along with a wall vinyl read ‘The Studio of Ross Hammond’. A viewing bench was also placed in front of the installation.
