Mona Hatoum
Artist / Multidisciplinary

Mona Hatoum’s poetic and political oeuvre is realized in a diverse and often unconventional range of media, including installation, sculpture, video, photography and works on paper.

Hatoum first became widely known in the mid 1980s for a series of performance and video works that focused with great intensity on the body. In the 1990s her work moved increasingly towards large-scale installations and sculptures that aim to engage the viewer in conflicting emotions of desire and revulsion, fear and fascination. Hatoum has developed a language in which familiar, domestic everyday items are often transformed into foreign, threatening and dangerous objects.

Mona Hatoum was born into a Palestinian family in Beirut, Lebanon in 1952 and has lived in London since 1975. She has participated in numerous important group exhibitions including the Turner Prize (1995), Venice Biennale (1995 and 2005), Documenta, Kassel (2002 and 2017), Biennale of Sydney (2006), Istanbul Biennial (1995 and 2011) and Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art (2013).

Solo exhibitions include Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, New Museum, New York, Modern Art Oxford, Castello di Rivoli, Turin, Tate Britain, London, Hamburger Kunsthalle, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Beirut Art Center, Kunstmuseum St Gallen, Switzerland, Centre Pompidou, Tate Modern, London and Kiasma, Helsinki.

    Paolo Novelli‘s (Brescia, 1976) exhibition entitled Il giorno dopo la notte (“The Day After Night”) brings together in the same space two cycles of his work made between 2011 and 2018, which are central to the evolution of his language. Both are made in analog in strict black and white, with the printing process being of paramount importance.

    Jun 1 – Jul 13, 2024
    Nicodim Gallery
    Los Angeles, USA
    What’s an It Girl? An image of an seraphic figure, glowing almost too bright to be looked at until the flashbulbs recharge and the cameras become visible. Glamoured, the viewer is still seeing spots and rubbing their eyes as the figure stalks out of view, no-one quite sure if she’s real or not, an apparition disappeared. An apparition, by its very nature is uncertain, the intention defined by the person who sees it – The angel becomes a monster if enough people describe it so. (more…)
