Harmony Hammond: Katzen Art Center
November 7 – December 13, 2015

Hammond and Frances Cape present Angle of Repose, curated by Jack Rasmussen, at the Katzen Arts Center, Washington, DC, and organized by SITE Santa Fe.

Harmony Hammond and Francis Cape present Angle of Repose, a collaborative installation that is conceived as a conversation between Foreclosure, Cape’s trail of exiled hand-crafted furniture and Flesh Fold #1, Hammond’s large layered near-monochrome painting with it’s skin pulled back to reveal a rawness underneath that must be covered over with the poultice of paint. “Angle of repose“ is a term used by engineers to describe the steepest angle to which a material can be piled without collapsing. The works of sculptor Cape and painter Hammond reflect on the precarity—financial, political, social and emotional—of our lives.
