Joep van Lieshout
Life and work
In 1995 Van Lieshout formed the Atelier Van Lieshout (AVL) studio group in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, where the company continues to design and fabricate their widely exhibited works. Atelier Van Lieshout has attained international recognition for objects-based projects that balance on the boundary between art, architecture and design.
Recurring themes in the work of AVL include self-sufficiency, power, politics, and the more classical themes of life and death. The name Atelier Van Lieshout emphasizes the fact that, although Joep van Lieshout founded and leads the collective, the work produced stems from the creative impulses of the entire team. One of his notable public artwork is Funky Bones, located in the 100 Acres: The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art and Nature Park,
