AT HOME: VILHELM HAMMERSHØI’S COPENHAGEN
Ottawa, December 2018
In her new body of work, Leslie Hossack explores the world of Danish painter
Vilhelm Hammershøi (1864-1916) who is best known for his poetic and muted interiors.
Her examination begins in the rare book collection at the National Gallery of Canada
which holds the 1918 publication pictured below. Hossack will then follow
Hammershøi’s trail to Copenhagen.

The Masonic Photographs by Leslie Hossack will be featured
in an exhibition and accompanying book in 2019.
This series reveals the intertwined history of
operative stonemasons and speculative Freemasons in Scotland.
It follows the mysterious story from the calloused hands of ancient builders
to the white gloves of modern Masons – an arcane legacy.

Leslie Hossack’s new body of work, The Rome Photographs,
explores Benito Mussolini’s Fascist Rome.
A selection of photographs from this series will be published in 2019
in a book entitled Rebranded: Mussolini’s Rome 1922-1943.
The image below shows a detail on a large government building
constructed during Mussolini’s dictatorship. It implies a link between “Il Duce”
and the legendary founding of Rome and the ancient Roman Empire.
