Mona Hatoum(1952-), Artist
Sitter in 2 portraits
Born in Beirut, Lebanon, she studied at the Byam Shaw and Slade School of Art. Hatoum's most arresting and innovative contribution was perhaps an internal self-portrait shown as her contibution to the Turner Prize exhibition in 1995. In Corps etranger (Foreign Body 1994) an endoscopic camera journeyed though her body in a real life Fantastic Voyage. The Entire World as a Foreign Land was the title for her solo show at Tate Britain 2000.
