MONA HATOUM

August 26 Nov. 29, 2015

Over the past three decades, Lebanese-born Palestinian artist Mona Hatoum has explored the fine line between the familiar and the uncanny in her visceral body of work. Through the juxtaposition of contradictory materials, changes of scale, or the introduction of uncharacteristic elements, she infuses commonplace and even banal objects with an element of danger, references to violence, or the capability to produce bodily harm.
