Entitled "Takrees" (Consecration), the video is one of more than 40 works by Lebanese artist Fatima Mortada currently on show at Mark Hachem Gallery.Mortada's first solo show, "Labyrinth" is provocative enough that a section of racier work has been curtained off for those over 18 . Others are missing limbs or have been defaced with red scrawls.In "Europa," a nude women with no lower arms seems to abandon herself to pleasure on the back of an enormous bison."Lost Powers" captures a one-armed woman dressed in what looks like a burlap sack. Two black circles of wool circle the areas where her breasts are not. The woman's figure is bereft of torso but burdened with a surfeit of arms, three of which – all ending in hands adorned with red-hued talons – appear to struggle with one another.Fatima Mortada's "Labyrinth" is up at Mark Hachem gallery until Feb. 20 .
