Sven ’t Jolle

°1966, Antwerp, Belgium

Sven ‘t Jolle is a socially committed artist. He uses simple, recognizable images, evoking new meanings as a result of their strange combinations. A photograph, accompanying an article in the newspaper De Morgen about the problems of persons seeking asylum affected him very much: a desert dingy playground, heavily fenced with barbed wire in the transit centre in Melsbroek. Holiday in Melsbroek (127) is a true copy of the play area on the photo. This fenced playground with toys made of polyester results in a powerful image, but leaves the visitor with a strange feeling as well, caused by the interaction with the coastal landscape, evoking a feeling of freedom.
