about this work

Richard Hamilton (2014) was created in response to an image from Hamilton’s exhibition Growth and Form, which was originally on view at the ICA, London in 1951 and subsequently recreated in 2014. The image in question is a blurred photographic fragment. The text, which accompanies the photograph, suggests that it depicts a plastic tube emitting foam. Roger Hiorns is renowned for his use of foam and here has adapted this technology in order to recreate the supposed scene in Hamilton’s image fragment. Hiorns considers the work to "not belong wholly to me or to Richard but to a time between its creation and its re-creation". Thus, "it seemed appropriate to name the work Richard Hamilton".

about Roger Hiorns

Sculptor and installation artist Roger Hiorns is primarily interested in materials and convolutions to affect transformations on found objects, social encounters and urban situations. His work generates and inhabits interstices between apparent contradictory ideas such as construction and destruction; the theological and the technological; temporality and permanence; authoritarian control and organic spontaneity.

Roger Hiorns has had solo exhibitions at De Hallen, Haarlem; Art Institute of Chicago; Tate Britain, London; and the Armand Hammer Museum of Art at UCLA, Los Angeles. His work has been featured in a number of exhibitions at institutions such as MoMA PS1, New York; Tate Liverpool; and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. He also participated at the 55th Biennial of Venice in 2013.

Hiorns’ work is included in such institutional collections as the MoMA, New York; the Art Institute of Chicago; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and Tate Modern, London. In 2009, Hiorns was nominated for the Turner Prize for his critically acclaimed work, Seizure, a massive crystallization within the interior of a bedsit in a condemned South London council estate.
