Lisson New Space takes pleasure in announcing a second solo exhibition by Mark Hosking.

“Before nightfall, a male figure appears on a shingle beach. Although dressed smartly, it is hard to define the quality of his apparel – he could be anything from a city worker to a vagrant. His actions on the shoreline seem determined and purposeful. He is manufacturing a fishhook from his house key using his toenail clippers as the cutting and filling tool. Later he will combine more of his belongings – a cufflink and an identity tag to make a shiny artificial fish lure. Finally he winds telephone cable around his shoe to improvise a fishing reel. He is ready to begin fishing, although he must hurry if he is to catch his supper before the light fades.”

- Mark Hosking, 2004
