About the edition

This limited edition fan made exclusively for House of Voltaire features a distinctive collage artwork featuring a male figure and pasta - typical of Hamilton's practice. Fan's have been a recurring motif in Hamilton's practice, notably in her performance KABUKI at Tate Modern in 2012. 

About the artist

Anthea Hamilton (born 1978) is a London-based artist whose current practice comprises installation, sculpture and performance. Her work is always site-specific: a consideration of the location, and the cultural and political environment as well as her personal circumstances at the time provide a framework for Hamilton’s research. Intuition then pulls ideas into forms within a non-verbalised structure: kimonos, chastity belts, boots, perfume, furniture, and mime troupes. Conversation and collaboration are also key to the way Hamilton works.

Constituted from a combination of objects and images, both found and made and rooted in a common experience of the world, the environments she produces are live and conversational, at once humorous and serious, dually minimal and maximal.

Hamilton has exhibited her work worldwide, most recently in solo exhibitions at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge; Kaufmann Repetto, Milan; Tate Britain, London; Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin; Hepworth Wakefield, Wakefield; Serpentine Sackler Gallery, London; SculptureCenter, New York; and KORO, Oslo. Group shows include MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles; Kayu-Lucie Fontaine, Bali, Indonesia; White Cube, London; Loewe Foundation; Miami, 13eme Biennale de Lyon and the Palais de Tokyo, Paris.

Studio Voltaire has been supporting artists for over twenty years, through our renowned programme of exhibitions, performances, events and education projects as well as providing affordable studios.

We have gained a reputation for championing both emerging and underrepresented artistic practices, often at key stage in the artist’s career. These have included Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Phyllida Barlow, Ruth Ewan, Elizabeth Price, Jo Spence, Joanne Tatham & Tom O’Sullivan, Richard Slee and Cathy Wilkes.

The gallery also provides an important UK platform for international artists, often providing them their first-ever presentation in the UK. These have included Nairy Baghramian, Thea Djordjadze, Nicole Eisenman, Judith Hopf, Paulina Olowska and Henrik Olesen.
