FredEerdekens_b°1951, Heusden-Zolder (B), Lives and works in Belgium.

Fred Eerdekens is renowned for his sculptures and installations where he combines language, light and sculpture into one entity. Using various media made out of copper, constructions of books or synthetic clouds, the common theme throughout each installation is how to bring about meanings within a spatial context through light and shadow.

As with the Duchampian object, the Eerdekens object is more conceptual than visual, and his aesthetics is defined by the specific sensuality of the cerebral. Time and again his pieces are tackling the question of how the language is related with the world.
