Since 2008, Yannick Ganseman’s work has consisted of private scenes, still lifes, portraits and landscapes in oil paint and ceramics, mixing sculpture and painting. His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries in Flanders, the Netherlands and Japan.
Wolken boven Brussel (Nuages) is his first solo exhibition in Brussels. For CENTRALE | lab, he is challenging himself to produce new works by transposing the context of the Place Sainte-Catherine undergoing construction works.
The artist will produce a series of large bas-reliefs throughout the exhibition with the intention of linking the outdoor space with CENTRALE | lab. The bas-reliefs will be made of wood, plaster, PU foam and polystyrene. They will be moved to the outside of the lab and thus subjected to the alterations of the weather and to the possible interventions of passers-by. The work process will be visible, with the artist working in the exhibition space. He will be available to meet the visitors.
This project at the lab is the first step in the creation of a work for public space, representing the clouds and the stormy sky of Brussels.
Yannick Ganseman (1984, lives and works in Brussels) studied at the Academy of Leuven in Sculpture 2002-2003 and in Drawing 2003-2009. He also studied Art History at the VUB in Brussels from 2015 to 2016. His works have been shown in institutions and galleries in Belgium, in France and in Germany. He is represented by OttyPark Gallery, Antwerp.
