Up right. Blocked out

Aaron Hoffman

Middle Gallery
6 May 2017–27 May 2017
Opening

Up right. Blocked is a site responsive installation that continues Aaron Hoffman’s sculptural and spatial exploration for new modes of imagining the body and its behaviour in space.

Aaron Hoffman utilises sculpture, installation and video to explore psychological states of loss and restraint, and the absent body. Engaging with materials including domestic objects, furniture, concrete, plaster and corporeal matter, Aarron uses casting and construction techniques to disrupt and hybridise characteristics of the original objects or sites.

  • Aaron Hoffman utilises sculpture, installation and video to explore psychological states of loss and restraint, and the absent body. He engages with materials including domestic objects, furniture, concrete, plaster and corporeal matter. Through casting and construction techniques he disrupts and hybridises characteristics of the original objects or sites. He intervenes in the function of the objects, challenging their fate in relation to open and closed systems, and redirecting their course to visually agitate the uncanny.
