Lieven De Boeck - Objet Trouvé
Objet Trouvé is the prolongation of the exhibition Image Not Found, which was on display at the FRAC in Marseille during Spring 2016. Although both exhibitions involve largely the same work, both presentations are radically different.
For Lieven De Boeck each exhibition represents a challenge to reflect about possible meaningful relations between his works but also to ponder about the relationship between his work, the space and the viewer. Since it is not that challenging to fall into repetition, Lieven De Boeck turns each project into a new encounter. In his work, Lieven De Boeck likes to play with the meaning of all kind of characters and typologies, ranging from language and symbols to units of measurement and building systems. Lieven De Boeck controls the outcome through sometimes minimal alterations, changing social or political signs abruptly into poetic characters, or new meanings in the logic of the artist.
