Updated: 5 May 2016
The work of Mona Hatoum, one of the most important artists of her generation, is coming to Tate Modern, reflecting 35 years of consistently poetic and radical thinking expressed through a diverse range of media. Her first UK exhibition presents around 100 works from the 1980s to the present day, from early performances and video, to sculpture, installation, photography and works on paper. Beginning her career in the 1980s with performance and video works, in which the body gave expression to a divided reality, the artist is well known today 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. Hatoum engages us in conflicting emotions of desire and revulsion, fear and fascination, through the juxtaposition of opposites such as beauty and horror. Immerse yourself in the work of one of the most important artists working today.
