"Mona Hatoum: Over My Dead Body"
2005-03-23 until 2005-05-29
Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney
Sydney, , AU Australia

On show at MCA from March 23 to May 29 is Mona Hatoum: Over My Dead Body. Born in Lebanon, London-based artist Mona Hatoum was travelling in London when war broke out in her homeland and she was unable to return. An emerging artist at the time, her practice was greatly informed by this imposed state of exile and this influence has continued throughout her 30 year career.

This major retrospective includes Hatoumís key works Light Sentence and Corps Etranger (Foreign Bodies). Throughout all her works is an investigation of the body in relation to identity. Born out of war and exile, Mona Hatoumís work is about the private emotional response to these broader eventsótransformed by her artistic practice into something that is ultimately very intimate.

Spanning the political and the personal, Mona Hatoumís work is timely and current, from her early performance work and its documentation in film and photography, to more recent installation and sculptural works.
