Maurice Blok, Netherlands

born 1979, lives and works in Lahti.

Maurice Blok is  a visual artist who lives and works in Finland. He holds degrees in sculpting and photography and has completed the faculty of arts and design (AKI) in Enschede, The Netherlands where he concentrated on sculpting and drawing. His actions and performances remind Roman Signers "action sculptures" involving setting up and carrying out "experiments" that bear aesthetic results. Often brief but intense actions create an emotionally and visually compelling event. Maurice Blok gives a humorous twist to the concept of cause and effect to the method of experimentation and discovery, taking on the self-evidence of scientific logic as an artistic challenge.
