Frans van Hoek (1995, ZA/NL) is an artist based in The Hague. Growing up in the Karoo desert, his practice explores phenomena by layering multiple temporal lenses. With a background physics and psychology, Frans attempts to integrate these forces through a site-specific practice. Considering shallow-time vs. deep-time, the macro-flows of physics and the micro-flows of poetic human moments. He often uses contradicting materials in search of a synthesis, or humour; a sparkling alignment shimmering through.
