From installations to performances: all of John Bock’s «Lectures»

The fourth solo exhibition in Milan of German artist John Bock has been presented in the spaces of Giò Marconi Gallery. The exhibition “Sweet Sub-NOTHING-Spores” proposes a series of installations.
John Bock, one of the best personalities in the contemporary art scene, experiences the theriomorphism in all its ways of expression. Like an inquiring child trying to find out the meaning of things, behind the objects that surround him and behind the human relationships that define him, by playing he gets to reveal their intrinsic ironic mechanism.
Objects, dolls, vases, lamps, drums…, decontextualized and assembled together in articulated clusters, they are reproduced under a different playful nature.
The same goes for his performances, where in the mis-en-scène everything is hybridized, inducing to a reflection about the abilities of human relations’ discernment. By recalling slapstick comedies, vaudeville and cabaret, the installations break down everyday routine and customs.
The so-called installations and performances “Lectures” are part of the same artistic discourse, a question and an answer that are a continuation from the mid-90s.
