Lieven De Boeck

°1971 - lives and works in Brussels (BE) and New York (US)

Lieven De Boeck is a keen observator of public spaces, which define our everyday reality. He approaches – sometimes subtle or playful, then again very radical - this notion of ‘public space’ from the perspective of the individual, regardless of the physical space it occupies. Opposed to these observations, he focuses on his comprehensive project The Dictionary of Space, which formulates concepts concerning architectural themes such as occupation, appropriation, borders, territories, representation and identity.

De Boeck’s visual language is described as withdrawn, hidden and locked, which, through an aesthetic use of omission, covering, cutting and pasting, ensures that white is the most prominent color in his work.

Lieven De Boeck has had numerous solo exhibitions, including Maison Grégoire, Brussels; Kunstraum München, Munich; LMAKprojects, New York; Extra City, Antwerp; Galerie Micheline Szwajcer, Antwerp; HDLU Museum, Zagreb; and Witte de With Centre for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam. He will show at Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Deurle in autumn 2016.
His work has also been shown in several group exhibitions worldwide, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Brussels, which traveled to The Baker Museum Florida, Naples; Galeries Lafayette, Marseille; ICA, Philadelphia; Santa Monica Art Centre, Barcelona and TENT, Rotterdam.

His work is also represented in many important public collections, including FRAC, Marseille; the Collection of the Belgian Federal Government; Pinakothek der Moderne Munich; and the MoMA Library, New York.
