Belgian artist Arnaud Eubelen expresses his creativity through a hybrid approach located somewhere between sculpture and design. His works are defined as much by their purpose, their relationship to place, as by the materials he uses. Materials that the artist seeks out in the streets of our cities, a huge DIY store that he, in a snub to consumerism, calls his ‘materials library’. He then reconstructs pieces according to his ideas and imagination, that belong to the world of design even though they are made from repurposed industrial elements. Diverted from their initial use, these materials link art and object to the manufactured world we live in through their qualities and intrinsic values. His installation is a perfect illustration of this idea.
