Mona Hatoum by Catherine Grenier
  

Synopsis

Mona Hatoum by Catherine Grenier

This is a richly illustrated and insightful exploration of Mona Hatoum's visual aesthetic and diverse influences. Mona Hatoum works in a diverse and unconventional range of media, including installation, sculpture, video and photography, with her artistic practice discussed almost exclusively in sociopolitical terms. This richly illustrated monograph - which includes a number of full-page illustrations - explores Hatoum's unique visual aesthetic and brings other influences to the surface, notably Surrealism (the first Western art Hatoum discovered as a young girl) and Minimalism (the dominant aesthetic she encountered in art school in London). In exploring these seemingly contradictory impulses, this volume uncovers artistic and personal concerns that go beyond a simple journalistic reading of Hatoum's artistic practice.
