About the artist
For decades Hawk has developed a dynamic practice across mediums such as image, film/video and public installations. Throughout his career, he has been invested in reflexive modes of expressivity, and the challenge of how to render a world of elements (conceptually, visually, culturally, rhythmically) from the vantage point of subjective perception – in all of its joy, horror, beauty, pain, virtuosity and magic. Adding to his own film material, HAWK hunts and gathers network-based images, societal photography, portraits, music videos, memes, and viral news footage to highlight the ambivalences of imagery in attempts to apprehend the present.
