Mona Hatoum (°1952, Beirut, moved to London in 1975) is an artist with an international reputation who has only been shown very little in this region.
At first, she was known for her performances with their marked political dimension, billboards in public space and videos. Towards the end of the eighties, she started making installations.
She participated in several important group shows, amongst others in the Museum of Modern Art in New York and in the Tate Gallery in London. Both the London Tate Gallery and the Centre Pompidou in Paris organised an individual exhibition of her work. Mona Hatoum's work implies an encounter/meeting of architecture and the human body, in which alienation of or acquaintance with forms, contours light and shadows play an important role.
