“her re-interpretation is fresh and unexpected”

“Hamilton’s disruption has, in fact, produced something subtle and sensitive to the very unique character of Kettle’s Yard itself”

“This is Hamilton at her best, creating conversations between different artists, eras and materials.”
Financial Times, November 2016
The Hepworth Wakefield and Kettle’s Yard are delighted to present a new installation by Turner Prize nominee, Anthea Hamilton, an artist renowned for her art-pop, culture-inspired sculptures and installations that incorporate references from the worlds of art, fashion, design and cinema.
This ambitious installation exhibits a series of new works, created by the artist in response to works from the Kettle’s Yard Collection.
Based on her research into the art and objects of the Kettle’s Yard Collection, Hamilton has re-appropriated objects from the collection, using unexpected details as starting points for new works. A monthly programme of piano performances will mirror the tradition of regular concerts in the house at Kettle’s Yard, established by its founder Jim Ede.
Significantly, Hamilton has invited several British and international artists, with whom she has either previously worked, or whose work is important to her, to contribute to the new installation. These include: French artist Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann; British artist Nicholas Byrne; German artist Daniel Sinsel and the celebrated American photographer Robert Mapplethorpe.
