BEN VAN DEN BERGHE & ALEXEY SHLYK: THE PLASTIC NUMBER
27.4 - 30.6.2017
Opening: 27.4 (6.30 pm)
Book launch: 16.06 (6.30 pm)
KRIEG is proud to present ‘The Plastic Number’: a duo-exhibition by Ben Van den Berghe (BE) and Alexey Shlyk (BY).
The artists found inspiration in the intellectual quest of the Dutch monk and architect Dom Hans Van der Laan (1904-1991), who researched the essence of religious architecture. His empirical studies led him to his unique concept of ‘the plastic number’: a three-dimensional elaboration of the golden ratio based on the importance of the spiritual perception of a space. In line with his studies, the artists will transform the exhibition space into a multi-media installation exploring escapist architecture.
