"Mona Hatoum 'at the Tate Modern, London
Born in Beirut to a Palestinian family,
Mona Hatoum is known for her large-scale installations and sculptures that challenge the official language of minimalism and surrealism to expose a world of conflicts and contradictions. From the beginning, in the 1980s, she has integrated video and performance in works that express a divided reality, besieged by the political and social control. Thus in a video, she documents a performance in which she walks barefoot through the streets of Brixton with a pair of Dr. Martens attached to the ankles. This exhibition traces 35 years of thinking that is both poetic and radical through a wide range of works.
Until the 21st of August. www.tate.org.uk
