FW22 marks our latest collaboration with London-based artist Anthea Hamilton, whose 2010 piece Aquarius forms the bold entrance to the Paris show space, as well as sculptural works from her 2018 work The Squash. In a film by Stephen Isaac-Wilson. Hamilton muses on the themes and ideas presented in ‘Mash Up’: her first major survey exhibition, currently on show at M HKA, Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp and proudly supported by LOEWE.
Known for large-scale installations that combine performance, sculpture, painting, video and fashion design, Anthea Hamilton’s strange, surreal worlds invite audiences to step inside and explore. Key works include her landmark 2018 sculpture-performance piece The Squash installed in the Duveen Galleries of London's Tate Britain.
Originally an homage to David Bowie’s Heroes music video and the Colossus of Rhodes, the reproduction of Aquarius (2010) comprises a 7 metre tall digital banner and scaffold support through which guests will enter the FW22 show space.
