Mona Hatoum, Grater Divide, 2002, Mild steel

Gaaahhh! Such an elegant, expressive, gestural work.  Referencing the pop art enlargement of Claes Oldenburg etc. but so much sharper, pithier, wittier.

Architectural references, Chinese lacquer screens, skyscraper cladding.

Chillingly ‘Grown Up’ but Childlike, The Borrowers, ‘honey I shrunk the kids’.
