Leon Vranken

°1975, Maaseik (BE) – lives and works in Antwerp (BE)

Leon Vranken is a sculptor who reflects on the formality and materiality of the objects he creates – in very diverse materials such as wood, textiles, rope and stone. He strives to show an object in its simplicity, playing with both the interdependence of the elements and the fragility of the whole that they form together. Central to his practice is a desire to reflect on how art and craft relate to each other, and how his practice relates to art history through that focus.
