Allard van Hoorn was born on February 29th 1968 in Leiden, the Netherlands.
Allard van Hoorn is a performance, sound, and installation artist who creates work that examines our relationship with urban landscapes and our systems of classification. He visually and acoustically translates the built environment and nature to call to question our preconceived notions and perceptions of the spaces we inhabit. (Newlin Tillotson)
