Pierre Huyghe is a producer of spectacular and memorable enigmas, with works that function more like mirages than as objects. Abyssal Plain (2015–ongoing), his contribution to the 2015 Istanbul Biennial, curated by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, was installed on the seabed of the Marmara Sea, some 20 metres below the surface of the water and close to...

Galerie Chantal Crousel is pleased to present the 7th solo exhibition of Mona Hatoum, from October 12th to December 21st, 2019.
New sculptures, installations and works on paper will be presented.
Pursuing her reflection on global conflict, displacement and surveillance, Mona Hatoum handles—in this new corpus of works—a wide range of materials such as steel, brick, concrete and human hair, in order to create areas of tension, paradox and ambiguity. The grid's motif and spherical shape are used as metaphors for confinement, oppression and destruction. The artist's works often catch the visitor's eye only to then push it away. Tinged with humour, her practice teases our knowledge on Minimalism or Surrealism, subsequently creating antagonistic emotions that uphold the strength of her work.
La Galerie Chantal Crousel est heureuse de présenter la 7ème exposition personnelle de Mona Hatoum, du 12 octobre au 23 novembre 2019.
De nouvelles sculptures, installations ainsi que des oeuvres sur papier seront présentées.
Poursuivant sa réflexion autour des conflits mondiaux, migrations et surveillance, Mona Hatoum manipule, pour ce nouvel ensemble d'oeuvres, des matériaux aussi divers que l'acier, la brique, le béton et les cheveux humains afin de créer des espaces de tension, de paradoxe et d'ambiguïté. Le motif de la grille et la forme sphérique sont autant de métaphores pour aborder les thèmes du confinement, de l'oppression et de la destruction. Les oeuvres de Mona Hatoum attirent le regardeur pour mieux le repousser ensuite. Teinté d'humour, ce travail joue avec l'idée que l'on se fait du Minimalisme ou du Surréalisme et fait ainsi résonner des émotions antagoniques qui font toute la puissance de son oeuvre.
Known for her politically charged works that explore themes like exile, mass-migration and displacement, British-Palestinian artist Mona Hatoum is experiencing renewed and timely interest today, particularly since her remarkable show at the Tate Modern in 2016.
