Eindhoven, August 22, 2018 – Starting August 29, 2018, Art Experience by KRL, located in
the heart of Sectie-C in Eindhoven, invites visitors to come and discover the other side of
Tijs Rooijakkers (1975) through its new exhibit: Spore.
Spore dives into the two- and three-dimensional world of Tijs Rooijakkers. Although he is
better known for his big installations, he leaves many to wonder how they come about?
Where does he get his inspiration? Before becoming colossal, his installations are born
through drawings. Spore gives an insight on his work process and his everlasting research
on form, movement and material, which represent the base of his work and helps bring his
installations to life.
What is presented is the result of years of fiddling around with various shapes and forms.
Again and again, over and over, the same movement; observing, seeing how it evolves. The

swirl, the carrousel, the boat and the spinning top, all symbols of movement, change and
Motions that can be found in his public works like the Woensel Supertoll, Leap into the
deep on the TU/e terrain, and his most recent installation, Stillleven, his new 150-meter long
installation on the parking structure of Westfriesgasthuis in Hoorn.
About Tijs Rooijakkers
Adventure and freedom are what drive Tijs Rooijakkers (Vorstenbosch 1975). As an artist,
he always seeks the unknown. “Experimenting for me is throwing myself into the deep, it is
nothing else but wandering”. This wandering leads to drawings and large installations that
read like sketches in space. They do not seem to apply to the laws of gravity or of nature.
They also seem to emerge effortlessly from their environment, in order to continue to grow
unhindered from their current form.
Spore can be seen as of August 29 to October 7, 2018, at Art Experience by KRL, Sectie-C,
Hall 12, Daalakkersweg 12 in Eindhoven.
