‘The Pictures She Doesn’t Show to Anyone’
When walking around Lukas Hoffman’s exhibition, you imagine what it’s like to walk as Hoffman himself. His work is hard to pin down, at least partially in the presentation’s two temporal approaches. In one, a series of large-format polyptychs is distilled and offers continual views along the side of a scrapped container, branded as ‘EVERGREEN’. The year’s worth of peeling paint on each letter is documented uniformly. In the distinct other, large format is used freehand, often without looking in the viewfinder. Fleeting compositions are created as a pedestrian walks ahead of Hoffmann, and the viewer follows.
