The Negotiating Table

From Whispered Art History:

The first of several visits by Hatoum. The performance took the form of an installation. Under a single light, the artist lay on a table, immobile, covered in entrails and completely wrapped in plastic, accompanied by the sound of radio reports on the state of affairs in Lebanon after it’s invasion by Israel. Previously titled Bars, Barbs and Borders.
