Fostering a cross-pollination between the digital and the physical, Nick Ervinck (°1981, Belgium) explores the boundaries between various media. The artist applies tools and techniques from New Media, in order to explore the aesthetic potential of sculpture, 3D prints, animation, installation, architecture and design. In his artwork Nick Ervinck always balances the narrow border between traditional sculpture and working with 3D. He has one foot firmly planted in the digital world. This means that he does not only use the computer as an instrument, but that the digital logic largely determines his artistic thought and method as well. At the same time, he always tries to respect the (art) historical heritage and history and archaeology are two of his main sources of inspiration.

With essays by Neil Spiller, Julia Kelly, Freddy Decreus and a conversation with the artist by Christine Vuegen
