Scott Hocking, was born in Redford Township, Michigan in 1975 and has lived and worked in Detroit since 1996. A sixth-generation Detroiter, he descended from a long line of Polish immigrants and Cornish cop-per miners who settled in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Hocking creates site-specifc installations, sculptures and photography projects, often using found materials and neglected locations. Inspired by subjects ranging from ancient mythologies to current events, his artworks focus on transformation, ephemerality, chance, the cycles of nature, and patterns of human behavior through time. Hocking’s work has been widely exhibited nationally and internationally, including Cranbrook Art Museum, the Detroit Institute of Arts, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Museum, The Mattress Factory Museum, the Van Abbemuseum, Kunst-Werke Institute, Kunsthalle Wien and the Gare St Sauveur of Lille, France.
