Sven 't Jolle

Sven ’t Jolle °1966, Antwerp, Belgium
Currently lives and works in Melbourne, Australia

"Sven 't Jolle connects social, political, cultural en art historical topics. In a dissection of society an overload of associations in drawings, sculptures and installations grow together into a playful-poetic wonderland. Fresh but nasty it remains within the borders of art, offering itself a critical focus on current issues. An exposé can start off, "about reality as the highest level of imagination", as the artist says." (Christine Vuegen)
