Anthea Hamilton

GREEN WAVES SPAGHETTI WAVY BOOT

2019
extruded grogged stoneware and pine ash glaze
22 1/8 x 8 7/8 x 2 3/4 inches

To make the works in her immensely popular Boot series, Anthea Hamilton explores the same 1970s disco-inspired boot silhouette in a variety of materials, among them marble, metal, concrete, and ceramic (seen here). By experimenting with the same form, Hamilton explores the way meaning shifts based on material and process. It also allows her to play with the boot as a living symbol, image, and historical reference. Hamilton was one of four shortlisted artists for the 2016 Turner Prize. Recent solo exhibitions include The New Life, Secession, Vienna; The Squash, Tate Britain, London; Anthea Hamilton Reimagines Kettle’s Yard, Hepworth Wakefield; Lichen! Libido! Chastity!, Sculpture Center, Long Island City; and Kabuki, The Tanks, Tate Modern, London.
