Bik Van der Pol

Liesbeth Bik and Jos van der Pol are artists who have worked together under the name Bik Van der Pol since 1995. Their practice aims to understand and articulate the ways in which art can create space for speculation and imagination within the public realm. Setting the conditions for encounter, Bik Van der Pol’s working process allows for the continuous reconfiguration of place, history and public. Their practice is site-specific and collaborative, and includes publishing, writing, and curatorial work. They see dialogue as a mode of transfer, where the element of ‘passing through’ is vital, as it is temporal and implies action and the development of new forms of discourse. Their practice is both a catalyst and a result of this method.
