    The Wall Works Series

    "Increasingly the limitation of fine art editions to prints and objects did not seem to reflect the technical possibilities and the recent developments in artistic strategies and actual art production. Installation in architecture had become an important issue both in theory and artistic practice. Edition Schellmann was trying to develop an idea as to how the concept of installation in a given architectural space could be realised as an edition. The result was the Wall Works project. It celebrates the basic idea of architecture being the ‘mother, the synthesis of the arts’. From the cave drawing on, in the development of the work of art, it has been an integral part of architecture."

    - Jörg Schellmann, ed., Forty Are Better Than One, Munich/New York, 2009, p. 396

    "Hatoum has developed a language in which familiar, domestic every day objects like chairs, beds, cots and kitchen utensils are transformed into cyphers of ambiguity and threat. She is a conceptual artist whose own work focuses on such issues as the instability of birthplace, shifts in gender roles, and power dynamics."

    - Jörg Schellmann, ed., Forty Are Better Than One, Munich/New York, 2009, p. 148
