HOK gallery

HOK gallery HOK is a tiny gallery in The Hague. Every two months HOK's space is given to just one artist at a time. Distorting art, preferably on the edge of against-the-grain underground pop culture: nothing wrong with transgressing a few boundaries now and then.

Opening tomorrow 19u00: Pull the Strings, the solo exhibition of Gavin Jay.

Gavin Jay is an artist to be cherished by all those opposed to single-mindedness. In the visual arts, he seems to have found his niche by combining Max Ernst’s revamping of obsolete imagery, found in old journals, with Joseph Cornell’s assembling of odd collections in glass-fronted boxes. The result is a strange and colorful series of three-dimensionally framed assemblages of found imagery from Victorian books and journals. Setting Gavin Jay apart from his first-half 20th Century inspirators is a dark twist of Psychedelia and Pop Art. Not surprisingly, these latter elements seem to shade off into the dark and twisted world of rock’n’roll. That’s right: when not assembling weird Victorian imagery into glass-fronted boxes, Gavin Jay is the bass player in Jim Jones and the Righteous Mind. And, being the artist that he is, Gavin, of course, provides visuals for this band: the cover of recent album ‘CollectiV’ was designed by him as well as various booklets, posters and t-shirts – thus combining music and visual arts. And no mean band this is, either. To name just one feat among so many others: in its former incarnation, the Jim Jones Revue, the band contributed the wildest and most devastating song to the late great Jeffrey Lee Pierce sessions project: Ain’t My Problem Baby.

These are mixed with sculptured parasites of the same collage material, creeping out of the walls and living of their host surroundings. The perfect setting for a 3D rorschach test is provided by HOK’s mirror wall. Opening Friday 8 November, 19h00 with a performance by @eva.elaine Don’t miss this!

The Spirit of Edo by Ronin.
Opening Thursday 19 September, 19H00 with opening by Mark Poysden.

Tattoos and lavish ladies will grace HOK gallery’s walls, with photographer Ronin as our guide through the Japanese underground, not meaning the metro. Ronin’s black-and-white photographs of gangster hood and eroticism in Toyo’s Asakusa district give a razor-sharp insider’s impression of the fringes of Japanese society.

Opening: The Spirit of Edo - Ronin
Also part of Hoogtij: Hoogtij#58

The collection’s ring binders are carrousels of bare legs, bare backs, bare feet, dreamy looks abd seductive smiles. Turn the pictures around and a commercial for ‘Plasto-Sein’ seduces its female readers to ‘develop’, ‘improve’ or ‘diminish’ their busts.
