Ann Hamilton

£50.00

Product description

First edition. Book is in very good condition as is the dustjacket.
Internationally acclaimed artist Ann Hamilton creates sensory environments filled with huge quantities of material substances - 10 tons of Linotype slugs, 750,000 pennies (the budget of a project, translated into the smallest monetary unit and laid into a skin of honey), 48,000 blue work pants and shirts. In the last decade, Hamilton has increasingly incorporated sound, video, and audience interaction in a way that aligns her more closely with performance artists such as Laurie Anderson than with traditional sculptors. Her multimedia works have been widely exhibited - from The Museum of Modern Art to the Venice Biennale - and she has been awarded MacArthur and NEA Visual Arts Fellowships. Her process-oriented installations, perhaps more accurately called tableaux vivants, are so particular to their sites that, after their initial showing, they survive only in photographs, sketches, and other descriptive documents. This book, the first major volume devoted to Hamilton's work, thus will be the only complete documentation of all of her temporal projects, as well as her photographs and early textile art.
