Gert Scheerlinck

Profile/CV

Gert Scheerlinck is a visual artist who was born in Ninove (Belgium) in 1973. He lives and works in Oosterzele. In his installations, sculptures and assemblages he refers to daily life, the natural environment, cultural stratification, relationships and contradictions. His work is based on used, found or disposable materials.

There are always associations connected to a certain form or the emotional suggestions related to it. Combining and relocating these materials constitutes a change in our perception of its utility, its lifespan or its status. By minimal interventions he transforms the waste into the unexpected clean.

He challenges the viewer to explore the dialogue between matter and daily life and at the same time, he invites them to take a moment and think about the entire life behind these things."
