Since the mid-eighties Danny Devos has maintained correspondence with convicted serial killers to gain a deeper understanding of their motives. From 1987 onwards he has been creating objects and installations referencing famous killers and their crimes. The Jockel project is one of his seminal works because it integrates a number of different facets of Devos's method. He provides the viewer with evidence of his study by presenting framed letters of his correspondence with the inmates. The four performances at the site of the four murders bring together the bodily practice of his art and performances with the project. The objects used reference his sculptures and installations.
