To create sculptures which evoke images, thoughts, emotions or stories, Rein Dufait uses found objects and various materials. He reinvents the ready-made and produces pieces with an economy of means, reinforcing his message. “Dufait’s work comes into being in his studio, almost despite himself, like a virtually autonomous proliferation of the materials and tools a sculptor gathers around him. (…) Because his sculptures are the result of a succession of sculptural operations, they also testify to their genesis and tell us something about sculpting," explains curator Hans Theys.
