Summary: A 118-foot-long wall seems to weep as droplets of water ooze from thousands of tiny holes.750,000 pennies form a vast copper mosaic. Creating massive sensory environments that combine sound, text, video, photographs, books, and huge quantities of material substances, Ann Hamilton makes theatrical installations that have been praised as "evocative.powerfully disturbing.always compelling"(Vogue).Now this internationally acclaimed artist -- winner of a MacArthur Fellowship and chosen to represent the U.S. at the 1999 Venice Biennale -- at last receives the comprehensive study that her work merits. Author Joan Simon has had unprecedented access to Hamilton's archives, and she has drawn heavily on the artist's own words and photographs to prepare this incisive portrait, the only complete documentation of Hamilton's art to date.

Riassunto: Internationally acclaimed artist Ann Hamilton creates sensory environments filled with huge quantities of material substances - 10 tons of Linotype slugs, 750,000 pennies (the budget of a project, translated into the smallest monetary unit and laid into a skin of honey), 48,000 blue work pants and shirts. In the last decade, Hamilton has increasingly incorporated sound, video, and audience interaction in a way that aligns her more closely with performance artists such as Laurie Anderson than with traditional sculptors. Her multimedia works have been widely exhibited - from The Museum of Modern Art to the Venice Biennale - and she has been awarded MacArthur and NEA Visual Arts Fellowships. Her process-oriented installations, perhaps more accurately called tableaux vivants, are so particular to their sites that, after their initial showing, they survive only in photographs, sketches, and other descriptive documents. This book, the first major volume devoted to Hamilton's work, thus will be the only complete documentation of all of her temporal projects, as well as her photographs and early textile art.
Recensione: Temporary installations are ubiquitous in art spaces today, but there is one artist whose mysterious and sensual room-sized works unsettle even the jaded viewer. In Ann Hamilton, art writer and independent curator Joan Simon offers an intensive guided tour of nearly two decades of projects that now exist only in the 300 evocative photographs that illustrate this book. Simon lucidly discusses Hamilton's explorations of time, language, and memory, beginning with the early pieces involving massive quantities of unlikely objects (a floor carpeted with thousands of pennies stuck in honey; a table covered with 14,000 human and animal teeth embedded in iron oxide) to the "slow emptying" of recent work in photography, video, and performance. While no book can re-create the complex of sounds, smells, and actions that make Hamilton's art so compelling, Simon helps those who have experienced some of the artist's works to understand their connection to the realm of ideas. --Cathy Curtis
