Patrick Van Caeckenbergh
Patrick Van Caeckenbergh’s solo show entitled Les Loques de Chagrin (De Smartlappen) will bring together several new sculptural works. Patrick Van Caeckenbergh offers us a manual to look over and over again at the classification of the world, through the eyes of the individual. By organizing and connecting all these elements of the dominating world, Van Caeckenbergh maps out the human condition. Inventory and encyclopedia blend together in a microcosm that changes into a macrocosm. In the world of science Van Caeckenbergh finds the allegories to portray his inner feelings: fauna and flora, the evolution theory, the food chain and cosmography.
