Vas-y!, 2005

John Bock’s work combines the theatre of the absurd with other unlikely settings and installations. His stage sets and ‘verbose’ actions always spring from cultural, neo-scientific, Surrealistic, grotesque and often violent sources.

In Vas-y!, a piece originally presented at the Lyon Biennale in 2005, Bock creates a ‘dwelling’ in a barrel that looks like a cross between a spaceship and a rodent wheel. It rotates by someone walking on the wheel inside of it making it impossible for those inside to remain still. In this piece, as in others of his creation, Bock alludes to an absurd existence within an irreconcilable quandary between setting, its function, and human aptitude.
