“In today’s world, where artists make a foray into the world of design, I find it interesting to explore the sculptural world, starting from the world of design. I choose to emphasise sculptural, substantive aspects in my creations, while ensuring they can also potentially be used.” - Tania De Bruycker
De Bruycker moves along the fine dividing line between design and sculpture with her Still Life wooden console. Design takes over from sculpture in this object, which is organised like a classic still-life.
When the still-life is upside down, it takes on a function.The intriguing and upfront roughness of this design is a reflection of the speed and turmoil that are so typical of our society, transforming them into a new form of classicism, that inspires a sense of tranquillity and contemplation.
