Kasper De Vos

BIO / SELECTED WORKS / CATALOGUE


(Be,°1988), lives and works in Ghent

Kasper De Vos collects components from his physical environment such as images, shapes and colours and stores/keeps them in his memory. Frequently it is there that he finds his material that is often human waste. Afterwards De Vos brings all of this together in his studio creating new combinations, which results in drawings, paintings, sculptures and even video. His works criticise the consumer society, but never doing this without a sense of humour and absurdity.
