Ephemeral Works and Evidence from Cameron Hockenson

4 December – 19 December 2015

Cameron Hockenson (1975-2015) had a site-specific practice that engaged issues of biocultural diversity as a unique approach to questions of place, time, and coexistence. This complexity was told through materials, context, and interpretive walks while taking forms such as a natural templates, micro topographies, animal housing or engineered bridges. Influenced by British land artists of the latter half of the 20th century, his sculpture embraced the diverse human and non-human vernaculars in the environments where he created the opportunities to work. His prolific planning sketches and life drawings were an equal part of his practice; in his own words, “After art becomes an archive of flattened sculpture and paper architecture, the generative process continues.”

Aggregate Space Gallery proudly presents this story of an artist and thinker whose enthusiasm and inventive practice invigorated everyone fortunate enough to experience his work. Prints on sale will support ASG’s new project specific Hockenson Grant for site-specific works and documentation.
