art at the office

cepezed has adorned its new premises with a beautiful work of art created by Vincent Mock. It represents an enormous, life-size hammerhead shark, which has been assembled completely out of fish hooks and now hangs freely in the spacious entrance zone of the office. The relationship between man and nature is an important theme in the work of Mock, who, after studying philosophy and intensive travelling also was the manager of a nature reserve in South Africa for a while. In his oeuvre, he explores the often as complex as elegant morphology of nature. He incorporates this in his pieces, often using very fragile and labour-intensive techniques and applications of materials. Thus, he raises his viewers' conciousness on both nature's vulnerability and their own attitude towards this. For more work by Vincent Mock, also see his website.
