Joep van Lieshoup Exhibition 26th Sep. Rotterdam

He is an artist who lives and works in Rotterdam. He became known in early 80's after producing objects in bright coloured polyester. The material has become his trademark. His work is between art, architecture and design.

'Infernopolis' exhibition presented to me a dystopian world where polyester men are machines in a huge abandoned warehouse. Large scale playful sculptures which one can observe from inside out are imaginatively disturbing. The exhibition definitely made me wonder about my position in society. Luckily I visited before it closed, on the very last day. A massive turnout, fantastic seafood (prepared from army style mobile kitchen) and plenty of wine fuelled an already unique afternoon at the Heijplaat dockland location.
