About Anthea Hamilton
Anthea Hamilton (b. 1978, London) makes surreal, large-scale installations that the viewer can step into and wander around. She uses a variety of different materials and techniques combining performance, sculpture, painting, video and fashion design. Hamilton’s work is visually playful and thoughtful and her sculptures feature collage-like images which reuse images from her previous work.
She was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2016. Large-scale solo exhibitions have included The Squash at Tate Britain, Anthea Hamilton Reimagines Kettle’s Yard at The Hepworth Wakefield, and Lichen! Libido! Chastity at the SculptureCenter in New York. She also designed The Garden for Studio Voltaire. Subject to the varying growing cycles and life–spans of plants, the garden is a long–term and ongoing commitment that has been made with care and attention.
