Art Installation by Tim Etchells

The British artist, Tim Etchells, has created a new, space-filling work for the new Lân fan Taal building at the Oldehoofsterkerkhof. The ingredients: neon letters, ringing telephones and personal messages!

Language is always central to Tim Etchells’ work. He questions contemporary identity and constantly probes our relationship with language in a way that is often funny and poetic. He has created a multidisciplinary work for Lân fan Taal with texts and neon, numerous telephones, and a story that is whispered in your ear.  

Etchells (1962) is a British artist and writer. His autonomous work is exhibited internationally and includes performance, video, photography, text projects, installation and fiction. He is also artistic director of the theatre group, Forced Entertainment (world famous for their experimental performances), and professor of Performance & Writing at Lancaster University.
