ABOUT THE ARTIST
Multidisciplinary art collective Atelier Van Lieshout (AVL) experiments across a diverse range of practices including sculpture, design, painting and architecture to create thematic bodies of work. Evocative themes such as political ideology, organic philosophy and existentialism permeate the work. Combining Surrealist and Minimalist forms, AVL creates striking works with controversial or sinister nuances, while at the same time conveying a lighter, humorous side. AVL’s work has been exhibited at the World Expo 2010 Shanghai, the V&A London and Harvard University USA. They are also part of many major museum collections including: the Museum of Modern Art (New York); FNAC (Paris); Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam); Prada Foundation (Milan); Museum für Gegenwartskunst (Zürich).
Established in 2005 by Parisian entrepreneurs and art devotees Loic Le Gaillard and Julien Lombrail, Carpenters Workshop Gallery is known for its discovery of bold and iconic design-art.
