Taking as its point of departure the experience of a visitor walking through the galleries and encountering each of the works, this book is a record of Mona Hatoum’s 2019 solo show at White Cube Bermondsey. With generous installation views, individual works and accompanying details, the reproductions of new and recent sculpture and works on paper are the subject of an in-depth essay by Dr Fiona Bradley.
Hatoum’s work reflects on subjects that arise from our current global condition, including systems of confinement, the architecture of surveillance and themes of mobility and conflict. Channeling the poetic charge and metaphoric resonance of a wide range of materials from steel, brick and concrete, to rubble, glass and human hair, Hatoum explores the elemental forms of the grid and the sphere, drawing on both the geometric rigour of Minimalist sculpture and the possibilities for its formal collapse.
