In the front space of the gallery, we
will be showing Drawings by Teun Hocks. During recent isolation,
Hocks started making large-scale drawings again from the comfort of
his own home. The keen sense of narrative and comedic touches, always
an integral part of his work, especially come to the fore in these
simple yet surreal drawings. While Hocks is usually the actor in his
own painted-over photographs, in his drawings he is free to invent
other anti-heroes to act out awkward situations: a man walking a
tightrope sloppily tied between a stool and a houseplant, a man
raking leaves during a storm.
Teun Hocks (1947, NL) lives and works in central France and Rotterdam, NL. He is one of the founders and icons of staged photography in the Netherlands. His work is exhibited worldwide and is part of a large number of institutional and private collections.
