Since 2009, Hamill has been travelling the world and exploring ist art schools for her series Art in Progress. In Cuba, Spain, Morocco, France, Germany, Poland, India, Vietnam… Wherever possible, the visual artist has set up her large-format plate camera. Without manipulating reality – Hamill abstains from intervening in any way, from the shot to the printing – she has taken the time to frame, to compose with space so as to better compose her own space. In order to let the images speak more freely, her framing has the frontality of Jean‐Luc Godard’s Contempt, its slowness, as well as its silences. “I have a certain way of confronting myself with reality,” the artist explains, “and that is conveyed by frontal images, and by a rather cold aesthetic, which offers the spectator the possibility of visually navigating through a space that is both contemplative and dynamic at the same time.”
