Anthea Hamilton, Man Arch (Pasta), 2013. Favorite
'Man Arch (Pasta)' is a photo-collage of two disparate images: a generic photograph of multi-coloured spirals of pasta overlaid on a black and white image of a smouldering male model. Juxtapositions of food and the human body are a recurrent trope of Hamilton's practice. While various commentaries can be drawn from these surprising visual analogies - for example on consumption, desire, and representations of the human body - the real intrigue of the work lies in its exploration of the surreal and seductive nature of images.
