Anthea Hamilton: Sorry I'm Late
firstsite's autumn season begins with a new solo exhibition by the British artist Anthea Hamilton.

Hamilton's energetic collages explore the surreal and seductive nature of images. Her sculptures, installations and videos make reference to the history of art, cinema and performance, playfully inserting the viewer into a three-dimensional composition.

Sorry I'm Late sees work installed across the building with firstsite's galleries dramatically transformed into a series of environments - from a film studio to a restaurant kitchen. Soft sculptures, Perspex figures mounted on wheels, a giant zoetrope-inspired portrait of John Travolta and a medieval cocktail that is claimed to cure cataracts are amongst the works that comprise the exhibition.

Anthea Hamilton's work has been exhibited internationally including presentations at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, the Barbican Art Gallery and Tate Britain, London.
