Erik van Lieshout

Erik Van Lieshout works on long-term projects that primarily end up as films, but also as drawings and objects. These constellations of work result from an intensive engagement with a given subject and a collage-like production process—construction, dismantling, discarding and reconstitution. Since the artist himself is quite explicitly part of the work, boundaries between public and private are consistently blurred. Complex, impulsive and demanding, the interleaving of content and form opens up a network of references, which are often densely compounded into exhibitions consisting of extensive spatial installations.


Erik van Lieshout has participated in numerous important solo and group exhibitions at home and abroad including S.M.A.K, Ghent, Istanbul Museum of Modern Art, BAWAG Contemporary, Vienna, Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Ludwig Museum, Cologne, New Museum, New York, Kunsthaus, Zurich, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Tate Modern, London, ICA London, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, the 2006 Gwangju Biennale, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, 2005 Sjarjah Biennial, Centre Pompidou, Paris, Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva, and the Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo.
