"Everybody is crazy, but me" april - july 2016

Born Brussels in 1971, he lives and works in Brussels and New York.

Artist and architect Lieven De Boeck has been a researcher in Fine Arts at the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht, and artist in residence at the ISCP New York and the Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen Innsbruck. Common threads in De Boeck’s long term projects, is the disappearance or alteration of identity, and the observations of the public domain which surrounds us and defines our daily reality as well as the context of any art practice. In 2003, De Boeck started his ongoing research, Dictionary of Space, to formulate concepts dealing with notions such as identity, representation, appropriation, borders, territory, and private and public space. By creating typologies for objects, thus generalizing and classifying them, De Boeck inevitably gives these items individualizing characteristics. Dictionary of Space has been developed in different contexts: from interventions in magazines, publications, texts and drawings, to performances, models, installations and video. ”
