Tate Modern presents the first UK survey of the work of Mona Hatoum (b.1952), one of the most
important artists of her generation. Drawing on her expansive career, this exhibition reflects 35 years
of consistently poetic and radical thinking expressed through a diverse range of media. It presents
around 100 works from the 1980s to the present day, from early performances and video, to sculpture,
installation, photography and works on paper.

Mona Hatoum is well known for her large-scale installations and sculptures which challenge the formal
languages of minimalism and surrealism to expose a world characterised by conflicts and
contradictions. She began her career in the 1980s with performance and video works in which the body
gave expression to a divided reality, besieged by political and social control. In the video Roadworks
1985, she documents a performance where she walked barefoot through the streets of Brixton with a
pair of Doc Marten boots tied to her ankles.

The body has always been central to Hatoum’s work and she is known for referencing its vulnerability
and resilience, as exemplified by Corps étranger 1994, an endoscopic journey through the interior and
exterior landscape of the artist’s own body. Her installations also situate the body as subject to power
or incarceration, evident in Impenetrable 2009, a suspended square formed of hundreds of delicate
rods of suspended barbed wire, and the iconic Light Sentence 1992. In this work, walls of industrial
wire mesh lockers and a single moving lightbulb create dramatic shadows that transform the gallery
into a disorientating and unstable place. Furniture and other familiar objects feature prominently in her
work, often modified and scaled up, to explore the fine line between the familiar and the uncanny.
Homebound 2000, for example, consists of an assemblage of kitchen utensils and household furniture
connected by electric wire, through which runs an audible electric current.

Hatoum’s work highlights the condition of displacement, shared by many in the modern era. Present
Tense 1996 is made from 2,200 cubes of traditional olive oil soap from Nablus, a city north of
Jerusalem. Lines of tiny red glass beads pushed into the surface depict the map of the 1993 Oslo Peace
Accord between Israel and the Palestinian Authorities. In the recent installation Twelve Windows
2012-13, comprising twelve pieces of embroidery made by Palestinian women living in refugee camps
in Lebanon, embroidery becomes an act of resistance. Organised and produced by Inaash, a Lebanese
NGO, these delicately embroidered ‘windows’ are suspended on crisscrossing steel cables, each one
representing key Palestinian regions through their unique motifs, stitches, colours and patterns.
Born in Beirut in 1952 to a Palestinian family, Mona Hatoum settled in England in 1975 after war broke
out in Lebanon. She is represented in major collections around the world and recent solo exhibitions
include Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice (2009); Kunstmuseum, St Gallen (2013); Mathaf: Arab
Museum of Modern Art, Doha (2014); and Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo (2015). She has shown at
the Venice Biennale (1995 and 2005) and Documenta XI, Kassel (2002). Hatoum was nominated for the
Turner Prize in 1995; received the Joan Miró Prize 2011; and will be awarded the Hiroshima Art Prize in
