Indeed, Joep Van Lieshout corresponds art and design in a common shift in the direction of the functional sculpture. For a number of years, Joep Van Lieshout has been coming up with constructive installations on a large scale, complex systems that he develops in his Rotterdam laboratory-space.
The Atelier was set up in 1995 and is a creative platform put together by this multitasking producer: artist, architect, designer and theorist. He guides the work and proposes collective, transversal, artistic mediation in the workshop’s open structure.
He carries out a reflection process on the human being, his interdependence and environment. Like a fictional scenario with a hero, a generic faceless man, told in episodes.
Joep Van Lieshout’s research is considerable and polyform and reveals an alternative and critical approach to experimentation, a constantly renewed contemporary questioning, driven by a globalised society that has lost its bearings.
