Ties Ten Bosch, Netherlands / Germany
Ties Ten Bosch (1977, NL) is a Dutch artist based in Berlin. His work can be defined as meta-art. Ties ten Bosch uses various media to investigate the role of contemporary art in today’s society and thereby questions his position as an artist, as well as the position of the viewer, which is central to every image. Ties subtracts elements that reflect on his own position as an artist and the state of the arts in general. He collects and then filters his material in order to make them into calm and serene images, although the notion of the disturbance of the previous chaos is still present.
Ties ten Bosch is represented by the Frank Taal Gallery in Rotterdam and Lage Egal in Berlin. He participated in numerous group exhibitions and projects, including numerous solo shows in Germany and Netherlands.
Besides working as an individual visual artist he is and has been involved in several artistic collaborations, such as: Volksrekorders, hOUTSKOOL (an analog art-zine), the B.a.d-foundation and currently with If Paradise Is Half As Nice.
