Mona Hatoum ‘Light Sentence’ 1992

Light Sentence is a room full of empty wire lockers with a light bulb swinging in the centre, causing the shadows on the walls to sway and shift in an unsettling way.

Wire mesh, electric motor , timer, bulb, cable , electrical wire 36 mesh traps metal component units by their juxtaposition a structure in the form of “U”. A bulb, suspended at the end of a wire, slowly varying height , driven by an electric motor and casts moving shadows based on its movement . The viewer is led in the activity of the work: the shadows of her body become part of the room.

Audience can immerse themselves in the space and shadows.
