Nikolaas Demoen

Year and place of birth: 1965, Ghent, Belgium Location: Ghent, Belgium

In his drawings, sculptures, collages, poems and film installations Nikolaas Demoen explores the boundary between human, often artistic actions and their end result, which may or may not be visible. In one of his videos we see the artist walk through his studio taking long strides. He isn’t heading anywhere, but there is the unspoken promise that something will happen. Demoen plays the role of the artist and the artistic process, a quest during which he sometimes vanishes behind serene, poetic objects.
