Solidarity and collaboration, translated to art. That is what artists Tom and Lien Dekyvere show in their site-specific work Rhizome. A web, made of hundreds of meters of illuminated rope, forms a house that shows us the various on- and offline connections humans make in all sorts of ways. Exchange websites, co-creation, couch surfing; people are connected in many ways. This work, a house, serves as a cocoon that reflects on our current society.

About the artist

Tom and Lien Dekyvere explore the deeper layers of reality and the mind. Just as the alchemists of former times they are probing for unexpected connections, in search of the boundaries between nature and technology, between man and robot, between dead and living matter.
