Lives in Ghent.
A specific installation of sculptures by the Flemish artist is shown in the les Jacobins cloister.
Made from organic materials, such as wax, tree branches, and animal remains, enclosed in old pieces of furniture and wrapped in blankets, the sculptures made by this Flemish artist deal with the life/death duality, and link back up with the mediaeval art of funereal sculpture.
