Thijs Lansbergen in Right Back

exhibition: 13 / 01 / 2013 - 13 / 02 / 2013
Location: Nieuwe Binnenweg 75

Difference makes I & I equal
The more we differ, the more we are the same. The Rastafarian culture knows no you and me, only I & I. This equality inspired Thijs Lansbergen to his theme 'Difference makes I & I equal'. From rats to lions and pigs to birds. No person can be found in his work. As a result, the visualized situations are not of one country or culture, but are identifiable for the entire world. The combination of Rastafarian culture, African art and the (very much) Dutch Thijs creates a special series of screen printing and animation that blurs cultural boundaries.
