Texte du rabat

Born in Lebanon, Mona Hatoum was exiled to London where she has lived and worked since the 1970s and where, in 1995, she was nominated for the prestigious Turner Prize. Through performance, video, sculpture and installation she immerses her audiences in emotional and psychic states -- as they take a journey through all the orifices of the artist's body; watch her 'drowning' in mud in a glass box; or walk down a long tunnel towards a light which literally will burn them. Often exquisitely beautiful, Hatoum's works are nonetheless powerful evocations of statelessness, denial and otherness.



Résumé
An exploration of the artist's powerful evocations of statelessness, otherness and denial.

Contenu

Michael Archer interviews the artist who describes the chronology of her practice; Guy Brett explores the key themes that emerge from the artist's work; Catherine de Zegher makes a complex and provocative analysis of "Recollection" a work she commissioned; Mona Hatoum has chosen a text by the influential Palestinian author Edward Said and a statement from the noted Italian post-war sculptor and performance artist, Piero Manzoni; the artist's writing section contains scripts from performances, two interviews with the artist and proposals for projects.
