AT HOME: Hammershøi | Leslie Hossack


September 3 to October 10, 2021

Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864-1916) was born in Copenhagen and lived there his entire life. His oeuvre consists of portraits, nudes, landscapes, architecture and interiors, but it is his interiors that continue to draw the strongest response.

One enters his private home, moves around his physical space, and then slowly encounters one’s own soul. Hammershøi projected his inner world onto his canvases and there I met him. It was a somewhat narcissistic experience. I had the sense that we both suffered from the same “interiority” complex.
