London - Exhibition

Mona Hatoum Solo Show

Tate Modern

04 May 201621 Aug 2016

Mona Hatoum‘s solo show will be on view at Tate Modern from may 4th to August 21st at Tate Modern, London.

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.
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.

Exhibition organized by the Centre Pompidou, Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris, in collaboration with Tate Modern and Finnish National Gallery / the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Helsinki
