Futuretense / APRIL 2015
April 2nd - May 3rd
The exhibition features a sequence of photographs made between 2012-2015. Seemingly disjunctive in nature, the images present an unsympathetic view of moments from the here and now. Interrogating our social climate as we progress past our first decade of the century, these images aim to reconcile issues of infringing technologies, failed national optimism, and a collective unease and mistrust of authority.
Hammerand’s photographs give a pointed view of our façade of forward-thinking modernity in a time of highly publicized violence, state-sanctioned violations of privacy, and increased public tension.
Andrew Hammerand is a photographic artist currently living in Boston, MA. Works of his are currently on view through May in the exhibition Watching You, Watching Me at the Open Society Foundations in New York City, and were additionally exhibited recently at the Silver Eye Center for Photography in Pittsburgh.
