Sven 't Jolle

Year and place of birth: 1966, Antwerp, Belgium Location: Melbourne, Australia

Sven 't Jolle creates tragicomical sculptures, works on paper and installations. The artist’s socio-political commitment at the core of his work results in a critical, humorous oeuvre. The artist meticulously removes superfluous details from any allusions to history, politics and social events and then incorporates them into his work. Some of his assemblages refer to almost forgotten artisanal techniques; this conscious link strengthens Jolle’s social message.
