Bik Van der Pol

Studio visits and seminar.

The Rotterdam artists Liesbeth Bik and Jos van der Pol have been making work together for ten years. Proceeding from their engagement with the immediate surroundings they create installations, often architecturally inspired, which they fill with a specific program. They thus confront the public with a specific place and force people to think about the history and future of that place, but also about the city in general. In their projects they also focus attention on the functionality and usefulness of art in a specific situation or place.
