SeriesMuseum Boijmans Van Beuningen (3 of 13)
Period & Style
From 29 May to 26 September, the Onderzeebootloods [Submarine Wharf] in the Rotterdam harbour area, will be exhibiting the sculptures of Atelier van Lieshout. Themes such as autonomy, self-provision, power and economy are central in the exhibition Infernopolis. Room-filling artworks and a forest of sculptures are installed in the enormous shed covering almost 5000 m2 The exceptionally efficient and ingenious systems developed by Atelier Van Lieshout give a new and repulsive insight into what it really means to be human. Atelier Van Lieshout, established in 1995 by Joep van Lieshout (1963), has achieved international recognition for its handmade polyester sculptures and installations that occupy the middle ground between art, architecture and design.
