LONDON.- Thomas Dane Gallery
announced its representation of Anthea Hamilton (b.1978). Over the past twelve years Hamilton has developed a highly individual and idiosyncratic language encompassing sculpture, photographic images and performance. Hamilton's work is often the result of research into a diverse range of subjects and source materials, manifesting in objects that suggest themselves as theatrical sets, props, costumes or installations that place the viewer implicitly within the reading of the work.
Hamilton lives and works in London. She was the subject of a solo presentation at SculptureCenter, New York, in 2015. In 2016 she was nominated for the Turner Prize and also undertook a major exhibition at The Hepworth Wakefield (Anthea Hamilton Reimagines Kettle's Yard), selecting works from the Kettle's Yard collection, and also using these objects as starting points for her own new works.
Hamilton's exhibition The Squash is the current Tate Britain Commission in the Duveen Galleries where she has created an immersive installation combining sculpture and performance that is on display until October 2018. This year she will also have a solo show at the Secession, Vienna.
Thomas Dane Gallery will present works by Hamilton as part of Frieze London in October 2018, and will have a solo show with her in London in early 2019.
