Anthea Hamilton The Sqaush has a solo performer in a squash-like costume who inhabits the Duveen Galleries every day for more than six months for the Tate Britain Commission 2018. Each element of The Squash has evolved from Hamilton's interest in a photograph she found in a book several years ago when looking at improvisational theatre and participatory art practices in the 1960s and 1970s. It showed a person dressed as what looks like a vegetable lying among vines and these images have inspired the costumes used in Hamilton’s work.
