Leanne Bock (aka Le Riquiqui) is a visual artist

b. Queensland, Australia, lived in London 2006–2013, Central America and México 2010–2011 & 2022, France 2013–2014, regional Australia and Sydney 2014–2017, Melbourne 2002–2006, 2017–2023.

Working with ordinary objects and themes of the everyday, I build democratic visual languages which playfully ask questions about mass culture and the absurdity of constructed reality. By exploring what familiar objects can reveal about broader collective social and psychological states, I’m interested in contemplating and connecting mundane details to the world at large (conflating micro and macro phenomena).
