The selection and installation of works intends to contradict the commonly-held notions regarding the output of this British-Palestinian artist as well as her position vis-à-vis the geopolitical references that have become synonymous with her production. Including installations, videos, sculptures, photographs, and works on paper, the exhibition expands the semantic field usually associated with Hatoum’s work and opens up new possibilities, hints at new meanings, and proposes a complex and renewed reading of her vast body of work.
