Maurice Blok, the Netherlands

 

Born in 1979, lives and works in Lahti, Finland.

Maurice Blok work is certainly one of the most interesting emergent artists on the Scandinavian scene. His work is very physical and yet poetic. Having used tools (as a sculptor) on an object it was only natural for him to bring this to his action art work too. Although he works as a perforamnce artist, he consider himself a sculptor. Constructing and deconstructing whilst having some kind of interaction with the audience (or not). Naturally, his performance art is ordered in a chronological manner, yet the viewer is not aware of this while encountering it. The actions he do do are often untitled. Since a name can draw the attention away from what the piece is (or maybe could be) – just itself.
