Composition with Circles
, 2016 is a limited edition of 20, each hand-made by Mona Hatoum and generously donated in support of the new Tate Modern and to accompany the artist’s solo exhibition at Tate Modern, 4th May - 21 August 2016.
The intimate and subtle works are created with the artist’s own hair, a material often used by Hatoum which can be considered to be evidence of the self and the generating body. In other works on paper by Hatoum, such as Skin, Nails, Hair and Urine
1979, materials from her own body are mixed with hand-made paper pulp to form random patterns and compositions. In others, lines are created by burning, cutting or sewing hair into the paper. Each unique work in the edition of 20 is signed and numbered by the artist and comes in a bespoke frame.

Born in Beirut to a Palestinian family, Mona Hatoum settled in England in 1975. Her work creates a challenging vision of our world, exposing its contradictions and complexities, often making the familiar uncanny. Through the juxtaposition of opposites such as beauty and horror, she engages us in conflicting emotions of desire and revulsion, fear and fascination.
