Projection: Whiling by Katja K. Hock

For her latest work, Whiling, Katja K. Hock uses the city as an external gallery, by projecting slow-moving films and images of nearby woodlands onto different surfaces and buildings in Nottingham.
- From: Friday 10 February 2017, 5 pm
- To: Friday 10 February 2017, 11 pm
- Location: Rock Cottage Brewhouse Yard, Castle Boulevard, Nottingham, NG7 1FB
For her latest work, Whiling, Katja K. Hock will be projecting largescale, slow-moving films and images of woodlands and sand quarries, from the former mining community of Bestwood village.
By choosing the woodland and the disused sand quarry 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.
