In this video, Joep van Lieshout talks about his background, his work between the poles of art and design, how his work changed over the years, his interest in the human body, the material he uses, and his current and upcoming projects such as very large installation called Cradle to Cradle, which is about the recycling of human beings and will be presented at Vinzavod Contemporary Art Center in Moscow in September / October 2009. Joep van Lieshout (born 1963 in Ravenstein, Netherlands) is the founder of Atelier Van Lieshout (AVL). He lives and works in Rotterdam since 1987. He studied at the Acacemy of Modern Art, Rotterdam. Since 1995, AVL creates work in the realm of installation, design, furniture and architecture.
