    About The Work

    Anthea Hamilton investigates cultural appropriation and pop culture, mining countercultures in music, fashion, and design (such as disco in the 1970s) and their entrance into the mainstream. Displacement and association recur in many of Hamilton's works, which often occur through the merging of an image and an object. Originally created as Hamilton's contribution to SculptureCenter's 2014 publication What About Power? Inquiries into Contemporary Sculpture, Power examines the intersection of power and sculpture. The boot depicted exists within a code of fashion: the wearer makes a statement that may have been original once, but now has become part of a highly encoded system and historical narrative. Merging the fashion system of the boot with the language of graphic design and implicating the body into this convergence, the leg attached to the boot twists becomes the stem of the "p." In these prints design extends out of and even obscures the body.
