Erika Hock

Erika Hock’s series of sculptures Elbows & Knees
draws upon Bauhaus furniture for inspiration,
particularly the tubular cantilever chair from the early
1920’s. The chair was to follow the human body,
tracing an elegant line in space, similar to the artist’s
sculptures. The Elbows & Knees become characters
that stretch out a leg, squat in a corner or lean
casually against a wall. The ‘tired’ lamp, the artist
designed for Nate Lights, is based on the child pose
in Balasana Yoga, a position in which the head goes
down on the floor and the rest of the body is folded
in order to relax.
