The Belgian artist Wesley Meuris (1977) is fascinated by the human obsession to catalogue, rationalize and designate. In his 3D installations he examines different architectural typologies in which this notion of controlling and managing is incorporated. Meuris deconstructs existing architectural models to unveil hidden mechanisms.
One of the essential aspects of his work is the discovery and visualisation of the human tendency to desire, meaning, diffusion and its derivatives, in all forms of architecture in which language is undoubtedly the dominant structure. Meuris objectifies human language and its taxonomy; he communicates this architecture as an abstract spatial datum, thus revealing its enormous impact. He seems to have found an interesting answer to our desire for information and communication, in many cases it is the phobia of assigning a name. The physical form of information has become the true – because it is tangible – form of communication.
