The exhibition by British artist Anthea Hamilton transforms the heart of Tate Britain with sculpture and performance. A solo performer in a squash-like costume performs within the Duveen Galleries every day for more than six months for the Tate Britain Commission 2018. Each element of The Squash has evolved from Hamilton’s interest in a photograph she found in a book several years ago when looking at improvisational theatre and participatory art practices in the 1960s and 1970s.
Anthea Hamilton works across sculpture, installation and performance. She is interested in the complexity of ways we read and respond to images. Hamilton was born in 1978 in London where she lives and works.
