Nick Ervinck - GNI-RI sep2009 EITOZOR
On view until 22.11.2009

Nick Ervinck (born 1981, Kortemark) is exploring the borders of different media. He tries to find out what the interactions are of virtual constructions and self-made sculptures. He therefore uses prints, video and digital drawings that are leading to the making of sculptures in coloured plaster, polyester or wood. In his digital prints and animations he creates a surrealistic space and plays with volumes, proportions and colours. For the space of Kunst Nu in S.M.A.K. he will start from a drawing of the 19th Century, that he transforms to a wall drawing. This new manipulated 2D-drawing will be interpreted in 3D as a sculpture with the title GNI-RI sep2009 EITOZOR between the walls of the exhibition space. Also interesting to know: on the roof of the Zebrastraat comes a new sculpture: WARSUBEC.

Raphaël Buedts
On view until 15.11.2009

They are something you have to get used to, these 'furniture objects' by Raphaël Buedts, which he compiled at the end of the seventies and in the eighties. They have been made from unusual materials, like discarded furniture, twigs, sheets of material, sticks and strips of wood. Apart from this he used rope, lead, canvas, silk, bricks and in some cases even shells. His handwork is aimed at using the material to create something spiritually and sensually tangible. Sometimes you have the feeling that he is trying to break through their close, uncommunicative aspect, and sometimes it seems as if his aim is to keep them in a form that is as introvert as possible.

Starting on 5th September 2009 the S.M.A.K. will be holding an exhibition in association with Cera together with the presentation of a book compiled by Frank Maes. On display will be an overview of his work, especially his sculptural work, as well as his drawings and paintings.
