'State of Extremes', Design Museum, Holon (IL)


11 December 2019 – 9 May 2020

We live in a state of extremes. Extreme weather, as a result of climate change, is both scorching and inundating the planet with record temperatures, unprecedented wildfires and ever more frequent and severe droughts, storms and floods. Meanwhile, extreme ideologies and political positions are being amplified by the media’s news cycles and the echo chamber of the Internet, further polarizing societies already inflamed by extreme, and growing, inequality and resentments. Extremes breed more extremes, creating self-reinforcing cycles of pushback and backlash, and fueling spiraling feedback loops of increasing intensity.

Atelier Van Lieshout artworks on display: Birds (on image, 2017), Process 50 ton 50 mm (2016), Hydroform gastank 275 BAR (2017)

'Home is a home is a home is a home', Jousse Entreprise, Paris (FR)


30 November 2019 – 11 January 2020

Home… So many other words spring from this one. At once abode, refuge, shelter, a home exists in our own home, and elsewhere: in a café, a town or city, or a bookshop. But what is this place, really? By dint of making a home from what is not one, what actually hallmarks it vanishes. This is what is proposed by the show’s title, inspired by the famous line of Gertrude Stein taken from her poem Sacred Emily*, written in 1913.
* Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose.

Atelier Van Lieshout artworks on display: Table wih Mexican Crockery + 8 Shaker Chairs (Sweet), 2006 (on image), Fauteuil Le Corbafrique, 2009, Table (polyester), 1996.
