the Eye Series

Tuesday 13 January 2009

2005 | 26 mins

In this filmed interview, part of "theEye" series, a series of interview-based profiles of prominent contemporary artists, Mona Hatoum explores the diverse sources of her work and her engagement with a wide range of often surprising materials. Hatoum talks vividly about the centrality of the body to her installations, and the ways in which her work employs changes of scale, intimations of restriction and constraint, and contradictory ideas of attraction and repulsion. The film is in English.
