Red Jesus (Venice)
Mona Hatoum

Red Jesus (Venice)
2003/05

Photograph (C-print), 43.2 x 54 cm (17 x 21¼"). Edition of 50, signed and numbered.


»I wanted to create works that privilege the formal and visual aspect of art making and try to articulate the political through the aesthetics of the work.« Mona Hatoum (born 1952 in Beirut, Lebanon; lives and works in London and Berlin) first became widely known in the mid-1980s for a series of performances and videos which focused with great intensity on the body. Since the 90s, her work has moved increasingly towards large-scale installations which aim to engage the viewer in conflicted emotions of desire and revulsion, fear and fascination. In the photo illustrated here, the artist was intrigued by the close neighborhood of enemy ideologies found in an idyllic everyday street scene in Venice.

Documenta11 Edition
Carrara marble, carved typography, string, oak wood shelf, 20 x 65 x 14 cm (8 x 25½ x 5½ in.), signed and numbered. Edition of 30.


Mona Hatoum, born 1952 in Beirut (Lebanon), lives and works in Berlin and London. »I wanted to create works that privilege the material, formal, visual aspect of art making and try to articulate the political through the aesthetics of the work.« Mona Hatoum first became widely known in the mid 1980s for a series of performance and video works which focussed with great intensity on the body. Since the 90s her work has moved increasingly towards large-scale installation works which aim to engage the viewer in conflicted emotions of desire and revulsion, fear and fascination. Hatoum has developed a language in which familiar, domestic every day objects like chairs, beds, cots and kitchen utensils are transformed into foreign, threatening and dangerous objects.
