AUSiMED PRESENTS THE SOCIAL EVENT OF THE YEAR THE SOCIAL EVENT OF THE YEAR

Michelle Hamer

Changed Priorities, 2014

hand-stitching on perforated plastic, framed with glass
51 x 67cm
$ 7,500 Gallery price

Michelle Hamer maps contemporary social beliefs, ideals and aspirations through text and urban environments. Familiar and often ironic, the works capture in-between moments that characterise everyday life. The boundaries and barriers that Hamer explores oscillate between fast and slow; past and present and become markers of rarely captured but revealing moments in time.

Drawn from photographs taken throughout Melbourne, London and New York, Hamer’s works are best described as “hand-stitched pixelation”, where each stick stands in for a pixel. It is translated predominantly by eye into her work. This traditional technique exposes an ironic romanticism present betwebetween manual stitching and the digitalisation of imagery in contemporary society.
