Time specific art installations. Slowly moving and choregraphed objects and performed events.
Installation artist Gijs van Bon attended the Design Academy in Eindhoven and received his advanced training at the HKU in Utrecht, Department of Theatre Design. He initially became known primarily for his abstract kinetic objects. From 2001 he exhibited regularly in galleries and art centers. He also began designing and performing theatrical, autonomous events.
The multidisciplinary objects and installations by Van Bon always move between two areas of tension: abstract moving objects and theatrical installations. He knows how to combine and use the boundaries between them to get as much as life as possible into his objects.
