Buiten Beeld: Simon Van Parys
Multimedia artist Simon Van Parys (°1986, based in Ghent, BE) graduated in 2010 with a Master in Free Arts (MFA) from the School of Arts (KASK) in Ghent.
Besides his Ghent studio, where his professional practice is based, Van Parys continues to expand his artistic horizon, with international collaborations from London to Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Tehran and Hong Kong.
Each new environment has a defining influence on his output.
His practice is influenced by large cranes, container terminals, automobiles and jet fighters. In short: robust futuristic machines with body.
The handmade sculptures – assembled with assemblies, advanced plastics and using 3-D technology – seem almost like extraterrestrial creations.
His sculptural work is complemented by various media such as painting, photography and digital drawings, as well as sound, which add to the sensory experience.
His work is a conversation between the present and the future, whether utopian or dystopian, depending on the viewer’s own world.
