A fresh and engaging look at the groundbreaking work of contemporary artist Mona Hatoum

The work of London-based artist Mona Hatoum (b. 1952) addresses the growing unease of an ever-expanding world that is as technologically networked as it is fractured by war and exile. Best known for sculptures that transform domestic objects such as kitchen utensils or cribs into things strange and threatening, Hatoum conducts multilayered investigations of the body, politics, and gender that express a powerful and pervasive sense of precariousness. Her works are never simple and often elicit conflicting emotions, such as fascination and fear, desire and revulsion. 
 
This copiously illustrated presentation of Hatoum’s oeuvre offers critical and art historical essays by Michelle White and Anna C. Chave and imaginative texts by Rebecca Solnit and Adania Shibli, which contextualize the artist’s work and its relationship to Surrealism, Minimalism, feminism, and politics. With extensive discussions on a selection of significant sculptures and installations, some of which are previously unpublished, Mona Hatoum: Terra Infirma provides an insightful look at one of the most exciting and influential artists working today.

Michelle White is a curator at The Menil Collection. Anna C. Chave is professor emerita of art history at the Graduate Center, CUNY. Adania Shibli is an award-winning Palestinian novelist. Rebecca Solnit is an author, historian, and activist.
