Mona Hatoum by Michael Archer ( Book )
7 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Born in the Lebanon, Palestinian artist Mona Hatoum was exiled to London, where she has lived and worked since the mid 1970s and where, in 1995, she was nominated for the prestigious Turner Prize. Through performance, video, sculpture and installation she creates architectonic spaces which relate to the body, language and the condition of exile. One of her most spellbinding and best known works is a video installation titled Corps etranger, where the spectator enters a small pavilion and takes a visual journey through all the orifices of the artist's body. Such works combine states of emotion and longing with the formal simplicity of Minimalism, creating powerful evocations of displacement, denial and otherness. Hatoum's many international exhibitions include the Centre Georges Pompidou, in Paris (1994); her work tours extensively to museums throughout the United States in 1997." "The distinguished British critic Guy Brett, explores key themes around a sense of place, the body and communication which emerge from Hatoum's range of work. The artist describes a chronology of practice in conversation with Michael Archer, writer, curator and co-founder of London's Audio Arts sound archive. Catherine de Zegher makes a complex and provocative analysis of Recollection, a work she commissioned for a sixteenth-century beguinage. Hatoum has chosen a text by the influential Palestinian author Edward Said as well as a statement from the noted Italian post-war sculptor and performance artist, Piero Manzoni. The book also includes Hatoum's own notes, statements and previous interviews."--BOOK JACKET

From the Publisher: Each of Mona Hatoum's works can be read as a formula for human existence, expressed in a penetrating visual language that is both complex and puzzling. As the artist herself points out, One is first experience of a work of art is physical. I appreciate works that have sensual as well as intellectual impact. Meanings, connotations, and associations begin to emerge only after the initial physical experience, when the imagination, the intellect, and the psyche are ignited by what one has seen. The daughter of Palestinian parents, Hatoum has long been regarded in Great Britain and the U.S. as one of the most important artists of her generation. Born in Lebanon in 1952 and a resident of London since 1975, her sensitivity to themes of power and identity has been heightened by a life lived outside her homeland. Many of her objects, video pieces, and installations deal with aspects of institutionalized violence and the vulnerability of the individual; her central point of reference is the body, in many cases her own. This is the first book to document the full breadth of Mona Hatoum's oeuvre, up to and including her most recent projects

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mona Hatoum was born in Beirut in 1952, to Palestinian parents. In 1975 she settled in London after civil war broke out in Lebanon while she was on a visit to Britain. She first became known in the early 1980s for a series of performance and video pieces which focused with great intensity on the body. Since the beginning of the 1990s her work has shifted towards installation and sculpture." "For the inaugural exhibition in the Duveen Galleries at Tate Britain, Mona Hatoum has created three new works. Dramatic in scale, Mouli-Julienne (x 21), Continental Drift and Homebound make familiar objects seem foreign, rendering them beautiful yet malevolent. Through the juxtaposition of opposites such as beauty and horror, Hatoum aims to engage the viewer in conflicting emotions of desire and revulsion, fear and fascination. In doing so she creates what Edward W. Said describes in his essay as a 'logic of irreconcilables'."--BOOK JACKET

5 editions published in 2008 in German and English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The works of Beirut-born artist Mona Hatoum, who currently lives in London and Berlin, incorporate very real topics. Many of her sculptures deal with conditions in the world's crisis regions, or exile; others show that familiar objects from everyday life can become very alien things. Hatoum's works appeal to the body as a common site of experience of scale, material, place and pain. "So while they may be read specifically in terms of her own personal history and the extreme experience of alienation and instability that is the fate of the exile, they also refer to the themes of memory, home, movement, location and space that are part of everyone's physical existence," as Kirsty Bell writes in her essay. Regardless of whether Hatoum works with barbed wire or sandbags, or magnifies kitchen graters into human-scale sculptures, she always succeeds in turning a familiar object into something else, something eerie, something unhomely."--Jacket
