about this work
The Hepworth Wakefield is delighted to present a new limited edition by 2016 Turner Prize nominee Anthea Hamilton. Hamilton is renowned for her art-pop, culture-inspired sculptures and installations that incorporate references from the worlds of art, fashion, design and cinema. Verging on the absurd, the works articulate perverse fantasies, intimately binding the body to products and things.
about Anthea Hamilton
Research is at the heart of Anthea Hamilton’s work, whether it is into art nouveau design, the roots of 1970’s disco or lichen. Each subject is studied closely and used as a lens through which to view the world. Hamilton talks of being strongly influenced by the early 20th century French writer and dramatist Antonin Artaud and his call for the ‘physical knowledge of images’. It is this bodily response to an idea or an image that she wants us to experience when we encounter her work and its use of unexpected materials, scale and humour.
