One artist springs immediately to mind – artist Mona Hatoum. (b. 1975 Beirut Lebanon). In her exhibition ‘The Grater Divide’ at the White Cube 2002 the artist used familiar objects on a larger scale, such as a fold out cheese grater that acts as a room divider. Hatoum’s work identifies with being uprooted and living in exile. Hatoum employs installation, sculpture, performance art and mixed media in her work, addressing subjects such as exile, the body, control, life death amongst others. Her work is fascinating.
