The Studio of...., Mixed Media Installation, 2018

‚Äč

Inspired by the Francis Bacon Studio 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 mythicized and a narrative is created through the objects and spaces that they occupied. In this instillation I collected items from my own studio, home and other artist donations and placed it within this studio cube. I placed a museum rope and pole and had text explaining certain items in the space (all fictional) along with wall vinyl saying ‘The Studio of Ross Hammond’. A bench was also placed in front of the installation.
