Sorrel Hofmann - The Rape

The Rape

Eclectica Contemporary is proud to present a new solo exhibition by Sorrel Hofmann entitled “The Rape”. Following on from her highly successful debut exhibition at the UCT Irma Stern Museum earlier this year, this body of work examines the harm inherent in seemingly healing gestures and therapies, ranging from the environmental to the psychological.

Consisting of paintings, sculptures, photography and large-scale installation, Hofmann takes seemingly everyday objects and minimalist artistic marks and weaves a complex and highly charged network of connections between them. “The Rape” forms the first part of an ongoing project by the artist entitled “Freud and Friends” and begins a process of seeking to untangle, critique and reimagine a nexus of control, prejudice and domination that pervades human existence in an increasingly globalised and spiritually fractured western-centred world.

Hofmann’s works are lyrical, meditative but nonetheless deft and forceful. As critic Danny Shorkend noted with reference to her previous exhibition “Atlas”: “her ability to say something with an economy of means, that is the fact of simplification, a sense that the clutter of sensations and feelings have been reduced, for want of a better word, to a few basic shapes and lines” is noteworthy.

Sorrel Hofmann’s new exhibition will be an opportunity to see the latest work by an artist who is gaining increasing attention for her unique approach to material and pertinent subject matter.

The exhibition runs until 7 July 2017.
