Erik Van Lieshout

How Can I Help You? documents Erik Van Lieshout’s turbulent experience in occupying a commercial shop in a shopping mall in Rotterdam. Although humorous Lieshout’s restless behaviour creates an anxiety between artist, shop owners and consumers. Lieshout affirms that everything in the shop is art to compensate for his lack of success commercially, but the project exposes the nasty relations between community art and commercial art between artist and audience.
