Mona Hatoum

Mona Hatoum creates a challenging vision of our world, exposing its contradictions and complexities. Hot Spot is a steel cage-like neon globe which buzzes with an intense, mesmerising yet seemingly dangerous energy. Elsewhere electricity crackles through household objects, making the familiar uncanny.

Art Exhibition previously on at Tate Modern in City of London, United Kingdom.
From Wednesday 04 May 2016 to Sunday 21 August 2016

This is the first major survey of Hatoum’s work in the UK, covering 35 years from her early radical performances and video pieces, to sculptures and large-scale installations. Born in Beirut to a Palestinian family, she settled in England in 1975.

Through the juxtaposition of opposites such as beauty and horror, Hatoum engages us in conflicting emotions of desire and revulsion, fear and fascination.
Immerse yourself in the work of one of the most important artists working today.
