About the artist
Gijs van Bon
Gijs van Bon is generally known for his abstract kinetic artworks, light art and time-based installations. His distinctly physical works seamlessly combine elements of technology, art and theatrical performance. He uses a constantly growing repertoire of technical inventions and materials to design his slowly moving and carefully choreographed objects. These installations often come ‘to life’ and become autonomous, theatrical events themselves. Both his small and large works invite viewers to take a better look while at the same time expanding their notions of time, language and space.
Gijs van Bon (1975) studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven and then completed a course at the HKU in the theatre design department. His work has been on display in galleries, art centres, events and festivals all over the world since 2001. He lives in Nuenen and works in his dynamic studio ‘La Citta Mobile’ in the city of Eindhoven amongst other designers and artists.
