  Mona Hatoum, Hot Spot III, 2009

Mona Hatoum

4 May 2016 - 21 August 2016
Tate Modern | London, UK

Considered one of the most important artists of her generation, Mona Hatoum was born in Beirut to a Palestinian family in 1952 and settled in England in 1975 after war broke out in Lebanon.

Her large-scale installations and sculptures challenge the formal languages of minimalism and surrealism to expose a world characterised by conflicts and contradictions.

The body is central to Hatoum’s work, which references both its vulnerability and resilience. She also highlights the condition of displacement, shared by many in the modern era. 

With around 100 works from early performances and video to sculpture, installation, photography and works on paper, this exhibition reflects 35 years of consistently poetic and radical thinking.
