Toine Horvers

Toine Horvers (NL) is a performance-artist who works with text and language.

Toine Horvers is a performance artist and a curator, who considers himself a designer whose works consist of simple systems and procedures for making language appear in time and space. This results in books of written drawings and works with electronic text displays in buildings and in public space, as well as sound installations and performances with text and voices.

Horvers about himself: As an artist I make performance-related sound-sculptures, text-displays, as well as ‘written drawings’, on both paper and onto architectural elements. (..) I consider myself as an heir of Performance Art, Minimal Art, and Conceptual Art. (2002)

Toine Horvers' work is included in the city collection of the Boijmans Van Beuningen, and applied inside the Erasmus MC. It can also be seen outside the Hague Municipal Museum, Van Abbe Museum Eindhoven, Centraal Museum Utrecht, Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, and the AMC Amsterdam.

Toine Horvers lives and works in Rotterdam.


Toine Horvers and Paul Cox will demonstrate the first prototype of the Beijerkoppen project during Test_Lab: Urban Screen Savers.
