About the Artist

Ann Hamilton b.1956

American artist Ann Hamilton studied textile design at the University of Kansas and sculpture at the Yale School of Art. Hamilton's primarily site-based installation works often combine sound, text, video, photography, books and large quantities of collected materials. Her practice is time-based and process orientated, and engages with the way bodies of knowledge are generated, contained, perceived and absorbed. Hamilton has exhibited worldwide, including a large solo exhibition at IMMA in 2002. She represented America at the Venice Biennale in 1999.
