Kwamé Sorrell, Fifteen Works by David Hammons

Regular price £100.00GBP

"That’s why I like doing stuff better on the street, because the art becomes just one of the objects that’s in the path of your everyday existence. It’s what you move through, and it doesn’t have any seniority over anything else."  David Hammons

Made exclusively for Claire de Rouen, this limited edition publication by Kwamé Sorrell (of BlackMass Publishing) presents fifteen works by legendary American artist David Hammons. The edition size is also 15, and each copy is accompanied by a single photograph of one of the works, meaning that each copy is unique.

The book includes an essay by Hammons and is a simple A5, staple-bound object. An object of modest format, but strong power.
