Born in Lima and a longtime resident of Columbus, Ohio, Ann Hamilton has received many honors including the National Medal of the Arts and a MacArthur Fellowship.
The body object series was Ann Hamilton’s first photographic project. Conceived and staged by the artist, these images are surrealist and absurdist, and sometimes humorous, with strong roots in conceptual, performance, and installation art. The sense of touch is a prevalent theme in Hamilton's work. Here, her imagery may be personal, but the images are universal in their evocation of the body as a receptor of sensation.
