I am part of a LIVING city

Art Exhibition previously on in Australia.

In an era of divisive politics Hamer’s work holds onto more subtle readings and mis-readings as it negotiates socio-political landscapes. The works consistently explore the fears, aspirations of everyday life through the lens of her own personal challenges as the slow gridded nature of her practice contrasts with the easily overlooked moments captured.

Hamer’s work reveals a tension between politics and mass exposure of language within the urban environment. Her slow hand-stitched work allows us the time to be present in complex and confronting moments. The language of the street reigns.
