Vincent Kempenaers

Ceramicist sculptor, professor at the Academy of Watermael-Boistfort (Belgium) until 2022.
Vincent continues, through his creations in porcelain and various materials (wood, paper, etc.), to explore a non-existent past of disappeared but plausible civilizations, as our civilization will disappear to give way to a new one.
Currently he works on forms from plastic packaging that he transforms into plaster objects, before creating clay stamping molds from these models.
This allows him to create new forms. Vincent recently introduced «animals» to repopulate this world where man disappeared.
Writing always has an important place, as well as drawing, porcelain is the blank page on which he expands. Various utilitarian objects punctuate this sculptural journey, some turning into sculptures.
Larger works are made in collaboration with Catherine Delbruyère.
