The weird and wonderful Jochem Hendricks


If you’re looking for something different, something weird, and something off the wall but filled with ethical and moral issues, The John Hansard Galleries have the show for you. German artist Jochem Hendricks brings his unique look on life. The objects he produces are beautifully realised, yet beneath the surface are often complex and elaborate back-stories, bordering the boundaries of legality. There are synthesised diamonds,


transformed from the concentrated essence of birds, and a Mazda MX5 sports car which has become a “part- time sculpture” through the artist’s tax arrangements. Find an eclectic mix of unsettling grimness with a 25 mile-long human hair, glued from individual strands and taxidermied fighting dogs, prepared to the artist’s specifications. Take a look at photographs from a 1970s archive of police investigations, printed by the former wife of terrorist Carlos the


Jackal, and a series of ‘optical’ drawings produced through the eye movements of the artist.


His artworks raise questions about the


value and meaning of labour, truth and story-telling, ethics and the role of the artist. Both playful, serious, provocative and sensitive, Hendricks questions our place in the world. Organised in collaboration with Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich and The New Art Gallery, Walsall, it features works spanning the past decade including sculpture, film, photography, installation and painting. On show across both John Hansard Gallery sites.
