LEONORA HAMILL_Art in Progress

Winner of the 2012 HSBC Prize for Photography, the Franco-British artist Leonora Hamill captures, in her series « Art in Progress », empty spaces of collective art practice.

« I photograph the studios in Art in Progress, when the students have just left or will be returning shortly and the collective energy is palpable. In this case I think the idea of the other is heightened by his/her absence. The space condenses the passage of time, the passage of students, of their labour and of their hopes ».
