The master brain behind the multidisciplinary company called ‘Atelier van Lieshout’ is the artist Joep van Lieshout. His art factory produces installations, sculptures, furniture, architecture and everything in between, van Lieshout is especially famous for his ‘Mobile Homes’. Strange organic environments, sometimes added to existing architecture, but also presented as architectural installations on their own. In has recent work he is focusing on the human figure, or it’s internal organs, in his art. He uses organs like the liver, heart and womb but also more sexual explicit ones like the penis and the vagina.
His work is best described as conceptual, but it’s far from difficult to understand. He plays with known imaginary, known cultural icons and basic human feelings and embraces them in his installation. His work is all about exploration and experiences, the exploration of the artist, but maybe even more the exploration of the visitors engaging the work of van Lieshout.
