The first monograph detailing the work of Belgian artist Leon Vranken, this book presents the most significant and complex projects of a practice now spanning over fifteen years, and is accompanied by three essays that address the many facets of his meticulously constructed works.
“Though Vranken mostly uses tangible, three-dimensional sculptural materials, his work cannot be described as pure sculpture. In all of his practice, what becomes apparent is a strong sense of materiality, which is pushed to several limits, whether in terms of craftsmanship, gravity, or illusion.”
Katerina Gregos
