While studying sculpture, I started carrying out short experiments in front of the video camera, which evolved into a performance art practice. Having worked physically, and using tools as a sculptor, I bring this element of construction and deconstruction to my action pieces as well. Having some kind of interaction with audience (or not) can often give a humorous twist to the concept of cause and effect. Although my work is performative, I still consider myself a sculptor.

Johannes Paulus Maurice Blok was born in the Netherlands. He lives and works in Finland.
