Jan van der Til  /  Curriculum vitae  /  Publicity  /  Support


In order not to become a houseplant I examin wild plants. Their survival strategies in adaptation, growth and distribution are an important source of inspiration for my work that, like weeds, grows between tiles, survives on infertile soil and invades landscaped gardens.'  
Til, J. van der (2019). Garden and metaphor. Do I understand my garden? Groningen, The Netherlands: Rhizomebook.


Jan van der Til uses abstract processes from nature such as growth, self-regulation and species spreading to develop theoretical frameworks for his work with which he acts against one-dimensional thinking.

His work - always titled Book followed by a Roman serial number - is shown (inter)nationally in galleries and museums. In order to be less dependent on institutes, he increasingly uses the internet (no social media) to show and further develop his work. Sustainability and the use of raw materials as little as possible also play a role in this.

Since 2021, he has been investing a lot of time in the crypto space, delving into the world of DeFi and the ever-expanding possibilities of blockchain technology. In addition, he is a director and advisor in various local and national nature organizations and manages a museum collection of modernist industrial design.
