PIETERJAN GINCKELS
THINGS ABOUT

“Our lives are hyper-real, and we feel the urge to continuously pimp, remix, recollect our own identity,” says Pieterjan Ginckels. “As such, I see myself as an embedded outsider, playing with ambivalences in speed and authenticity.” The Belgian artist’s work concerns itself with the acceleration of modern life and he demonstrates this through exhibitions and experiences that interweave spatial, artistic and design practice, and everything in between. Performative in nature, Ginckels received attention for his installation PISTE, a velodrome within a museum, and S.P.A.M. Office, a surreal office environment dedicated to finding order within the detritus of electronic communication. (ICON Magazine, ‘Future 50,’ 2013)

Ginckels’ work can be found in the permanent collections of Mu.ZEE (Ostend), Museum Voorlinden (The Hague) and ING Belgium, and have been shown at ANDOR (London), BOZAR (Brussels), The Graham Foundation (Chicago), Onomatopee (Eindhoven), Beaufort Triennale, Bucharest Biennale and NAK (Aachen), among others. In 2011 Ginckels received the Center for Fine Arts Award at the Young Belgian Painters Award 2011, BOZAR Center for Fine Arts, Brussels.
