Dimitri Vangrunderbeek

Rasterstructuren in het atelier

Dimitri Vangrunderbeek is a judicious operator of images, objects, spaces and the feelings associated with these. Under his influence, spaces start to hesitate and objects become defenceless. He carefully tears them open with a letter opener and deciphers their innards. The cross section reveals the intimate beauty of a cupboard, table or chair. Even when a piece of furniture is sawn into slices or pulverised with a grinding disk it retains its dignity.
Each piece of furniture treated becomes unusable. The object falls apart in terms of material, volume and composition. At the same time it becomes a new object. Vangrunderbeek removes the practical value of an armchair by covering it with plaster, an armchair that becomes a sculpture, which has a different relationship with its environment and which is partially hidden from view, so that we can imagine the hidden parts in our head.
