Czech performance and installation artist Lukas Hofmann presents his first New York solo show at Art in General, curated by Karina Kottova.

About

Hofmann’s artistic and performative practice is strongly visual, highly emotional or even obsessive, as seen through the lens of a generation that inherited this planet in a rather anxious state. His performances where several actants give a breath of life to a carefully set up physical environment, create moments of both extreme tension and vulnerability, inviting audiences to share the deeply embodied feelings of anxiety as well as hope. Hofmann’s newly commissioned work consisting of video, objects, installation and performance centers around the concept of skin as a multi-layered metaphor. Skin is seen as a semi-translucent membrane, both dividing the bodily self from the rest of the world, and providing access to it; a sphere of the most intimate contact, letting the environmental elements enter the body, holding the body together and yet being so vulnerable to outer powers.
