For her latest work, Whiling, Katja K. Hock will be projecting slow-moving films and images of nearby woodlands onto the Newton building at Nottingham Trent University and Nottingham Contemporary at Weekday Cross on Saturday 12 November, from 5.30 pm – 11 pm.
By choosing the woodland and the disused sand quarry near the former mining community of Bestwood Village as her subject, Hock addresses a topic especially relevant to the area – the demise of the mining industry – while at the same time presenting the contrasting beauty of the surrounding woodlands nearby with the busy city environment.
Hock will also be exhibiting as part of the 10th Anniversary of Nottingham Light Night on Friday 10 February 2017. Location details will be released in due course.
