New Tribal Labyrinth
by Atelier van Lieshout
New Tribal Labyrinth offers a survey of works from the eponymous on-going project by Atelier van Lieshout (AVL).
The project New Tribal Labyrinth reflects on our extremely advanced and complex society, in which over-consumption and limited raw materials play a crucial role. In AVL's vision, this will lead to conflict and the subsequent emergence of a new world order, with groups of people organising themselves in tribes instead of nation-states. This new tribal world will see a return to farming and industry – which currently both have been banished from our society – and a re-establishment of our relationship with materials which now has been lost.
The book – published in collaboration with GRIMM gallery – is richly illustrated showcasing not only the finished works of the artist but also how some of the pieces were made by van Lieshout and his team in their Rotterdam studio.
