Jocks in Socks
Jocks in Socks is a hand-made terracotta urn by Mark Mann. Mark draws inspiration from ancient Greek aesthetics. This playful artwork depicts a contemporary interpretation of the iconic urns from the classical era. The athletes which surround the surface are shown wearing capes, jewellery and modern sports socks. Mark uses humour to incorporate queer histories within contemporary culture.
