Lula Valletta, Purgatorio; Hok gallery, The Hague

Hok Gallery (hok is Dutch for cage) is the newest and – with just eleven square metres walking space – also the smallest gallery in The Hague.

It opened its doors this month, and in bimonthly exhibitions it tries to connect with the underground pop culture.

As such – tiny as it is – it could become an interesting and again diversifying addition to art life in The Hague.

Its first exhibition shows collages by Lula Valletta.

In these collages, many of them based on the famous Ghent Altarpiece, she seems to hark back to Dada and German art of the Interwar period.

The rediscovery of the less “stable” art movements of the 20th century seems to become more prominent in European art these day.
