Patrick Van Caeckenbergh

°1960, Aalst (BE) – lives and works in St.-Kornelis-Horebeke (BE)

With his drawings, collages, models and sculptures Patrick Van Caeckenbergh consistently attempts to visualize his own habitat in a highly personal, yet universal way. His mysterious artistic practice attests an untameable urge to gain, capture and preserve knowledge, as much as possible, through books, films and art history. Van Caeckenbergh connects the everyday life with encompassing global systems or great discoveries of the world. With little means, the assembled results often remind the viewer of fables and fairy-tales.
At the basis of this oeuvre is a process of thinking and tinkering, whereby his work often is described as philosophical and critical of the social structure.

Patrick Van Caeckenbergh has had important solo-exhibitions at Bonnefantenmuseum, Maastricht; Musée des Beaux-Arts, Nîmes; La Maison Rouge, Paris; FRAC PACA, Marseille; Museum M, Leuven; amongst others.
His work has also been included in numerous group exhibitions as the Venice Biennial in 1993 and 2013; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Manifesta 1, Rotterdam; Tate Gallery, London; the 5th Biennial of Lyon; ICA, London; MCA, Detroit; De Appel Arts Centre, Amsterdam; and Culturgest, Lisbon.
