Peter Hammar’s mixed-media sculptures and installation speak both to permanence and the fleeting moment, posited on various distortions of time—nostalgia. LCD lights ripple along aged wooden surfaces, wallpaper is discolored by time and sunlight, balloons and ice fill the gallery with a feeling of excited impermanence. These objects haven’t been altered much. They are vessels for our associative interpretations. The work is in Flux and the status of the work is in question, fragmented, dislocated and failing, exploring the Meta qualities of art, mixing unusual materials with traditional practices. A back and forth reading of the artworks, an oscillation between form and content, 'reading' of texts, or artifacts, 'against the grain' of their ostensible, assumed, agendas, never existing in pure or unmediated form. An ‘otherness’ always inhabits a work.
