WAYS OF SEEING

A TEXT ABOUT IN DUST THINGS MEET BY TIES TEN BOSCH WRITTEN BY SARIE NIJBOER

At the core of Ties Ten Bosch’s work lies an observation and understanding of the world around us, a process of constant exploration of what we see and foremost how we see. With each series of work, the artist experiments with the possibilities of seeing. The installation In Dust Things Meet is a continuation of his approach to this experimentation. The work emerged from his residency and artistic project If paradise is half as nice #11, which took place in 2021 in an abandoned GDR department store in Meuselwitz, Germany.
