Tibor Dieters’ practice is primarily concerned with human relations and their socio- economic context and exploits – how social and political relationships between people, objects, and the spaces wherein they exist generate a web of shifting ethics. His work captures and compiles, exposes and (re-) contextualises the often absurd and exploitative nature of everyday systems of authority. By utilising various logistical systems – like the postal service or unpredictable algorithms – to dictate the outcomes of the work, his methodology outsources creative control – challenging conventional notions of authorship. This calls into question who has historically been allowed to carve their signature into statues, and who has been left to sweep away the remaining marble.
Tibor Dieters graduated with honours from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, The Netherlands in 2019. He has been exhibiting in solo and group exhibitions in Slovenia, Denmark, France and The Netherlands, amongst others: ‘Haagse School x Haagse Nieuwe’ at Museum Jan Cunen in Oss in 2020, ‘Blurring the Lines’ at Espace 15 in Paris in 2019, ‘A Celebration of Life Through Light’ at Martin Asbæk Gallery in Copenhagen in 2018 and ‘Let Me Tell You About’ at Unseen Photo Fair in Amsterdam in 2017.
He has been an artist in residence at CCA Andratx in Andratx, Spain in 2019 and is currently an artist in residence at WOW Amsterdam. He is winner of the ‘SBK Sprouts Young Talents Award 2019’, was nominated for the department and thesis award of The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and is Winner of the Group Show 2018 at Martin Asbæk Gallery.
The collaboration between Tibor Dieters and Galerie Bart dates back to 2019.
