Bio:

Thomas van Linge
Born in Haarlem, The Netherlands (1989), Lives and works in London.

I recently mainly worked with media ranging from sculpture to video, music and found objects. My intention is to make work that uses a playful approach to popular culture, musical heritage and the effects of technology and commodification on the contemporary human condition. I try not to stick to any specific (post) studio practice. I tend to appropriate imagery, create my own content, outsource, collaborate etc.
I consecutively run two record labels called BAKK and RUBBER that focus on releasing experimental dance records and distribute to a world wide audience. I also perform live under my music moniker Randstad.
