Catalogue Note

‘I see furniture as being very much about the body. It is usually about giving it support and comfort. I made a series of furniture pieces which are more hostile than comforting.’ Mona Hatoum cited in: Michael Archer, Guy Brett and Catherine de Zegher, Eds., Mona Hatoum, London 1997, p. 20.
