Mona Hatoum: Remains To Be Seen Exhibition in Bermondsey

White Cube on Bermondsey Street is currently hosting the latest exhibition by Mona Hatoum. The first presentation of her work in London since the Tate Modern in 2016, this exhibition includes new and recent installations, sculpture and works on paper. Hatoum’s work reflects on subjects that arise from our current global conditions, 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, in this exhibition she 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.
