Mona Hatoum, Harmony Hammond, Dóra Maurer - White Cube - ★★★★ - Until November 3, 2019


This is an interesting opportunity to see the work of three women artists who all seek to challenge us in apparently different ways. Mona Hatoum's work explores the fragility of the planet in her works like Map (mobile) and Hot Spot.  She also makes us ponder the transitory nature of human constructions in Remains to be Seen and in works like Hair Mesh brings these same questions to a more intimate level. Harmony Hammond asks us to look at her work from a feminist point of view as she presents large, near-monochromatic works which rise from their frames and hint at an inner reality while offering textured and complex surfaces. Dóra Maurer's exhibition at White Cube coincides with her current display at the Tate Modern and focuses on work which challenges the eye. The shaped canvases use vivid colours to explore perspective and make us question and reflect upon the nature of our own perception. The paintings change and grow as we reconsider the spatial relationships between what is interior and what is exterior. In fact, the exploration of internal realms and external realities seems to be a theme that unites what at first appears to be the very diverse work of these women.
