Hoick is a creative studio and loose art collective founded in 2014, centred around the partnership of Dale Lawrence (b.1988, Cape Town) and Claire Johnson (b.1986, Pretoria). Hoick is based in Cape Town and operates out of their studio in the Bo-Kaap. From a primarily graphic background, the group has worked in a diverse range of modes, from branding and film posters to installation and sculpture, both commissioned and produced for exhibition. In May 2015, Hoick produced a collaborative exhibition at Smith Studio, joined by Franco Fernandes, Ben Johnson and Bella Knemeyer. The exhibition was an investigation of the inability of objects (monuments were case-in-point) to communicate to a universal audience. The exhibition consisted of large scale papier-mâché based mixed-media sculptures, accompanied by supporting print work, painting and drawing. Frequent collaborators include Franco Fernandes, Ben Johnson, Bella Knemeyer and Matthew Freemantle.
