Tate Shots visited Mona Hatoum during the installation of her exhibition at Tate Modern

Born in Beirut to a Palestinian family, Mona Hatoum settled in England in 1975. Her work creates a challenging vision of our world, exposing its contradictions and complexities, often making the familiar uncanny. Through the juxtaposition of opposites such as beauty and horror, she engages us in conflicting emotions of desire and revulsion, fear and fascination.

Immerse yourself in the work of one of the most important artists working today.
