Anthea Hamilton: the Prude

Thursday 07 March 2019Saturday 18 May 2019

Immersive installation comprised of objects, sculpture and images inspired in part by Cecil Vyse, a character in EM Forster's A Room with a View. The balance of materiality and economy is consistent with Hamilton's practice, where tactile surfaces are often conceived through digital production. Suggestive of previous exhibitions and series, The Prude is largely a continuation of Hamilton's The New Life at Secession, Vienna (2018). Four distinct interiors emphasise the confluence of domestic and gallery space through a number of wall treatments: airbrushed, textile clad and digitally printed wallpapers. The Prude also challenges relationships of scale and content, with large soft sculptures of moths and butterflies, and extravagant stone, marble, and walnut wavy boots. The effect is less an analysis of artifice, more a consideration of the way objects and images may influence meaning when treated to different processes of realisation.
