Thomas van Linge is a London based artist that works within media ranging from sculpture to video, music and found objects. Van Linge draws his inspiration from a wide spectrum of cultural phenomena such as the ethos and visual heritage of electronic music, pop aesthetics, industrial production, digital iconography, the effects of technology and commodification. Van Linge has recently graduated from the Royal College of Art in London and has shown in solo and group exhibitions throughout Europe and recently in institutions such as Somerset House, J Hammond Projects in London and Paradise Works in Manchester. Later this year Van Linge will start a residency at Kunstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin with support from the Mondriaan Fonds.
He consecutively curates a bi-weekly podcast called Rubber Tijd and two record labels called BAKK and RUBBER that focus on releasing experimental dance records and distributes to a world-wide audience. Van Linge also performs and produces under his music moniker Randstad and frequently hosts radio shows on Red Light Radio.
