Atelier Van Lieshout (AVL) is a multidisciplinary collective in the field of contemporary art, design, and architecture. His sculptures enter into a discourse with functionality, with form and its language, questioning the position of the artist. He has a fascination for the power that objects, machines and systems wield over humanity, and the (ir)relevance of the individual in the face of this power.
