Event description
EXHIBITION : Nick Ervinck shows his ceramics for the first time

About this event

Human beings are capable of the best and the worst, they defend an idea and its opposite: they extol the merits of organic food but develop synthetic meat; they exalt individual freedom but develop means of control over the movements, health data and consumption habits of their peers. It defends freedom of expression as much as 'political correctness', the democratic majority as much as the rights of minorities. We live in a world full of contradictions.

In the exhibition Oxymoron, Nick Ervinck confronts contradictory worlds, fictional or real, splendid or monstrous, in some thirty ceramic works. The uncertainty and tension that emerge are both tragic and hopeful. Ervinck reminds us that all balance is inherently unstable and that everything is always in motion.

Nick Ervinck is a Belgian artist, primarily a sculptor, who has developed a unique language by combining classical techniques with computer modeling and 3D printing. His work is on the borderline between the figurative and the non-figurative and is bright, colourful and poetic, with a playful touch. This is the first time he has exhibited his ceramic work.

Nick Ervinck's futuristic world finds a beautiful 'contrary' echo in the authentic medieval architecture of the Adornes Estate.

The event is inspired by the Bruges Triennial 2021, whose theme is TraumA, and takes the visitor on a journey between dream and reality, illusion and reality.Exhibition - Nick Ervinck shows his ceramics for the first time
