Well-known as a purveyor of alienation and despair, an artist who delights in turning kitchen utensils into instruments of torture, Mona Hatoum‘s many fans weren’t disappointed by this work displayed at Mason’s Yard a few years back.

Mona wields blazing neon red lights to illustrate the areas of conflict on Earth. That is to say… every area on Earth.
