JOCHEM VAN TOL





           Amsterdam based Jochem van Tol (1983) is an interdisciplinary artist who works across the fields of visual art, performance and music,  addressing sound in the broadest sense: from the raw frayed edges of pop music to minimal ‘forgotten’ sounds. He has researched the sounds of paper in the past 10 years in a number of remarkable performances with Paper Ensemble. He is an active member of diverse experimental, highly visual music groups like The Job, Obol Le and a new artist-run-collective o k a p i.   He collaborated in successful theatre productions with Schweigman& and De Veenfabriek.
 


With Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti he developed a series of sculptural paper instruments and formed the Paper Ensemble.
The performances of the Paper Ensemble bridges the worlds of the Sculptor and the Musician.
He shows how much there is to discover in the most simple material and how to choose radical consequences from his discoveries. This resulted in a new vocabular of movement.

Since 2007 Jochem van Tol  has performed and exhibited extensively abroad, especially in Japan amongst artists like Yoko Ono, John Cage, Mamoru, Yukio Fujimoto, Francis Alys, Germaine Kruip, Toshi Ichiyanagi and Ken’ichi Nakagawa.


Jochem lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
