The work of Erik van Lieshout explores the boundary between documentary and art. His videos, which are always shown in installations composed of simple materials, usually show the artist as a commentator of daily events. In Sex is Sentimental, Van Lieshout places himself entirely in the centre of a lightly coarse love story and an existential pondering of artistry. What is art, and what is love? And how do you combine the two? For the first time, Van Lieshout experiments with stop-motion collage techniques, which he uses to integrate his drawing practice into his video work.
