    Sam Anderson’s practice draws from a wide range of mediums, including film, sound, assemblage, and sculpture. Her work often plays with personification and the subject of ambiguous embodiment, while drawing on existential themes such as isolation, the search for autonomy, and anxiety about death.


    Time Crisis 4 (1-10) represents four stylized figures, sequentially arranged by age from young to old. Each figure pushes a directly older rival down the line, emulating a human life-cycle chart. One attempts to displace their predecessor; inversely, all acquiesce to an inevitable succession, forming an exchange of control and surrender. Each of the ten works is cast in one of five semi-transparent resin colors: Healthy Urine, Pink, Blue, Strawberry, and Faded Green.
