Since sculpture is one of the main focuses of the Tim Van Laere Gallery's program, Domestication, a new sculpture by Atelier Van Lieshout will be shown in the Tim Van Laere Gallery_Yard, an outdoor space next to the gallery.

Joep van Lieshout lives and works in Rotterdam. Since the early eighties he produces objects in mainly bright coloured polyester, the material that would become his trademark in subsequent years. In 1995 he founded Atelier Van Lieshout (AVL), undermining the myth of the individual artistic genius. Atelier Van Lieshout has attained international recognition for objects that balance on the boundary between art, architecture and design. These works of art are practical, uncomplicated and substantial.

Recurring themes in the work of AVL are autarky, power, politics and the more classical themes of life and death.
Works of AVL can be found in many important private collections and several international museums such as Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Van Abbe Museum, Eindhoven, Bonnefantenmuseum, Maastricht, Museum Kröller Müller, Otterlo, Centre Pompidou, Paris, MOMA, New York, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MAK, Vienna, Ludwig Forum, Aachen, K20 K21 Kunstsammlung Nordrhein Westfalen, Dusseldorf, The Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, Sprengel Museum Hannover, Prada Foundation, Milan.
