Artist and researcher who proposes a dispersal art practice. An art practice that incorporates the distribution of art and the making of art. He creates art projects that evolve over time and art objects that are distributed through galleries, archives, off-site, online and in print.
His practice critiques the conventions of the art object, and questions the making and showing of art by using tactics such as aggregation and dispersal, modularity, embedding, symbiosis, hybridisation, and self-reliance. A cross media practice dispersed through audio, blogs, books, fonts, videos, websites, archives, exhibitions and public art. Recent work includes digital archives of artwork titles, which speculate about people and objects (re)directing a flow of art. Van Rijn received a PhD in Fine Art in 2015 from University of Southampton and he studied Landscape Architecture in the Netherlands.
