The Armory Show 2020 art fair is currently hosting a solo exhibition of Joep Van Lieshout. The seminal Rotterdam-based artist explores the theme of life and death through surrealist furniture designs and sculptures. The exhibition coincides with a solo show at Carpenters Workshop Gallery in NYC.
The gallery expressed in a statement: “From living sculptural installations that assert or question independence, to invented objects and thematic bodies of work that push all limits, Van Lieshout dissects and invents systems – be it society as a whole or the human body – to explore power, self-sufficiency, politics, fertility, life, and death.”
Check out some of the pieces below, and read further about Lieshout’s solo exhibition at Carpenters Workshop Gallery in New York titled “The Good, The Bad, The Ugly” here.
