Stijn Van Dorpe
Stijn Van Dorpe (°1970, BE) lives and works in Ghent. In his work he questions the meaning of creative production and experiments with alternative production models. With a sense of poetry and beauty, he researches the relation between art and society. On the one hand by integrating art in the everyday world, on the other hand by bringing the outside world into the mental and physical space of art. His work often moves between sculpture, installation and performance.
During MANUFACTUUR 3.0, Stijn Van Dorpe collaborates with students of decorative painting techniques at the KTA2 in Hasselt. By covering a room with marble faux paintings, the artistic production of the artist and the creation of the craftsmen start a dialogue.
