The Fossickers Way *Nicholas Projects                                                                        

The Fossickers’ Way is a new body of work continuing Hodge’s examination of image construction, authenticity and narrative illusiveness. Here, claimed images are re-formed, composited into what the artist refers to as 'stand-ins for flags or banners' and presented alongside sculptural and sound works which oscillate around a rejection of the commodification of queer signifiers; fragments of identities and histories sit beside mis-formed remains, a requiem sounds.
