Ann Hamilton is a visual artist internationally recognized for the sensory surrounds of her large-scale multi-media installations. Noted for a dense accumulation of materials, her ephemeral environments create immersive experiences that poetically respond to the architectural presence and social history of their sites. This image comes from the common S E N S E, an exhibition held at Henry Art Gallery. Using materials and representations of animals, Hamilton creates an elegiac accounting of the finitude and threatened extinctions we share across species. She asks: “How are objects—once animated by a living context—re-animated in cultural imagination, as we recognize the reach and the limits of our hands to touch and our voice to call?”
Born in Lima, Ohio, in 1956, Ann Hamilton received a BFA in textile design from the University of Kansas in 1979 and an MFA in sculpture from the Yale School of Art in 1985. Hamilton has served on the faculty of The Ohio State University since 2001, where she is a professor in the Department of Art. Hamilton represented the United States at the 48th Venice Biennale and is a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship. Hamilton premiered her video piece, table, at Urban Video Project (UVP) in April 2014.
