Naked, frontal, tortured, locked up, assertive, these are the bodies that Josef Hofer offers us to see. The bodies? His body…? And do they offer them to us, these representations, or are they personal explorations? Do they link up with the outside world or do they participate in this retreating life imposed by the various handicaps the artist carries, including deafness and mutism? Josef Hofer started his graphic work at the age of 40, in creative workshops. A marked sexual character, framing that could be described as haphazard, and always the repetition of this frame made of yellow and red-orange lines ... Which corresponds to the frame of his mirror, placed at the foot of his bed, in his bedroom… Place to explore his body, in reflection, in parts.
