In arranging his works for 'Pragmatic Sculptures' at Atelier Ecru in Ghent, Bram Vanderbeke shares a vision of an anachronistic city landscape. Featuring both shimmering and dark high-rise volumes, combined with denser, stacked bodies – alluding as much to today as to the excavation of future ruins and the reconstruction of forgone foundations. A dynamic yet substantial composition that presented itself as if by coincidence, emerging spontaneously, as the works organised and reorganised themselves in his atelier, claiming their place during the vital labour of his process. It therefore represents his practice thoroughly, relating the variety of shapes and sizes to the consistency of his idiom.
