Anthea Hamilton

Anthea Hamilton (born 1978) says about her production that is more about play than work, being savvy at spotting visual associations rather than skilful in a specific craft or discipline, and approaches a thinking that carries the legacy of Surrealism’s connection to everyday objects. She has remade many excerpts of well-known Hollywood movies such as “The Piano Lesson”, to transform the narrative and use as installation props. She has also quote several art piece from other artists such as an inflatable version of Robert Indiana’s “Love”. Hamilton is also credited for taking photos of album covers over real life settings so the album art and pictured environment would bleed and overlap into one another.
