A Night with Lasse Hoile & Carl Glover




Photographers Lasse Hoile (Denmark) and Carl Glover (United Kingdom) will team up to give an informal lecture at the Noorderlicht Photogallery (Groningen) on Thursday, March 9, 2017 (20:00 - 23:00). Hoile and Glover will say something about their work, the book INDEX, and their cooperation with Steven Wilson and the bands Porcupine Tree and Blackfield. They will also present new work, and there will be time for drinks, questions and signings.

Entrance is free, but you have to sign up via email: balie@noorderlicht.com.

Lasse Hoile’s work is exhibited until March 12, 2017 in Noorderlicht Photogallery. He is a renowned photographer, film director and cinematographer. Using mixed media and intertwining vintage style with a modern-day twist, Hoile is best known for his close collaborative work with musician Steven Wilson, whose projects include Porcupine Tree and Blackfield. Influenced by melancholic music as well as Francis Bacon, David Lynch and Andrei Tarkovsky, Lasse Hoile taps into the human psyche. He creates stark depictions of reality that often convey a sense of emotional struggle. Faces are wrapped, hidden, and obscured. Lone, distorted figures travel through a desolate landscape. Vintage-style erotica is given a shamanistic touch. Seduction and repulsion go hand in hand. Hoile’s cinematic language pulls the viewer in, and then cleverly leaves us to our own devices.
