Evolving out of a cross-disciplinary engagement with performance, Hamilton’s sculptural practice is engaged in opening up theatrical spaces into which she projects herself, creating elaborately staged self-portraits that resemble three-dimensional Surrealist tableaux. Her sculptures are props for narratives that have yet to be realized. They are precarious and subjective formations that seem to be poised on the cusp of realization and collapse. Although made deeply autobiographical through the recurring insertion of personal motifs, such as Hamilton’s signature cut out of her own leg, these installed scenarios involve viewers on a bodily level through a combination of tactile materials and sensual allusions.
