Anthea Hamilton’s eclectic formal vocabulary intersperses a diverse array of found objects with fragmented elements of figurative sculpture created by means of her characteristic ‘cut-out’ technique. Silhouettes of legs and arms populate her immersive installations, imbuing them with a performative potentiality. As these figurative proxies assume the role of protagonists, the assembled objects become props in abstract narrative scenarios.

Anthea was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2016. FInd out more about her work:
