Harold de Bree: SSIXS
Sieben… Zwei… Drei… Sechs… Sechs
What’s happening at HOK Gallery? Has the DDR’s secret spying service reopened its headquarters at HOK Gallery? No, it’s Harold de Bree in HOK Gallery, Home or Contemporary Underground, with a brand new collection of works, thematically centered indeed on spying and military information exchange systems.
After having his mock soldiers marching the Biennale in Venice, and having a life-size submarine emerge in the pond of the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, Harold de Bree now continues the happy marriage between militarism and art in HOK Gallery with a spying feast, titled after the Submarine / Satellite Information Exchange System: SSIXS.
Along with the expo HOK publishes a limited edition booklet, which has Harold de Bree’s lifestory and deeper thoughts and risographed reproductions of his works.
Over Z Hok Gallery
HOK: home of contemporary underground. HOK is a tiny gallery at Mauritskade 77 in The Hague (The Netherlands). Right around the corner of the Denneweg. Every two months the whole floor is given to just one artist at a time. With her exhibitions, gallerist Angela van der Helm-Rookmaaker is going for the limit. Distorting art, preferably on the edge of against-the-grain underground pop culture. Music, film, comics or women’s magazines: nothing wrong with transgressing a few boundaries now and then. Each exhibition is accompanied by a limited edition publication, dedicated to that one artist.
