Les Artistes

"La Gioia" october - december 2014 

Born in 1971 in England. Lives and works between London and Amsterdam.

In his sculptural work, Mark Hosking transforms and remakes objects challenging their former use-value assigned within western consumer society. His works are complex and combine functionalism and aesthetic standards. Simple objects used in daily life are changed in what he calls “social sculptures,” with the function of cooking or fishing and at the same time becoming instruments through which the contemporary man can regress to a “primitive” state.
