Mona Hatoum is the subject of an exhibition at White Cube in Bermondsey running until 3rd November. Hatoum’s work was widely displayed in Twelve Windows at Tate Modern in 2016. Remains to be Seen features a series of new and recent installations, sculptures and works on paper. Themes of mobility, confinement, the architecture of surveillance are addressed using a wide range of materials including brick and glass.
These media add a layer of poetry to her exploration of minimal forms such as the grid and the sphere. In Remains to be Seen, of the most significant work in the exhibition which gives its title to the show, Hatoum transforms industrial building materials into a suspended cube.
Other highlights include Hot Spot (2006) and Map (clear) (2015) Hatoum uses cartography to explore instability and precariousness in today’s political landscape. A must-see show.
