Mona Hatoum

Mona Hatoum's avant garde art installations are known throughout the modern art scene today. Born in Beirut in 1952 of Palestinian parents, Hatoum settled at the outset of the Lebanese civil war in London, where she studied art from 1975 to 1981. She now lives in London and Berlin. Since her first successes in the mid-eighties, her unconventional art work (performance, photography, video, sculpture, and installation) has appeared to enthusiastic acclaim in solo and group exhibitions in many countries around the world. Having long ago abandoned figurative art, Hatoum shows a marked tendency in her work to disturb, discomfort, and dislocate her viewers.
