Dimitri Vangrunderbeek

Dealing with Ordinary Form

In his artistic research, Dimitri Vangrunderbeek (1964 Brussels), investigates the transformation of everyday objects into autonomous artworks and explores how such objects might relate to their environment. The subject of his practice-based PhD at Melbourne’s RMIT University is an extension of this interest. His presentation at Netwerk can be summarised as an integral installation that addresses the spacial quality of objects, new possible readings of these objects and the momentum by which autonomy can arise.

Dealing with Ordinary Form has a double character. The presentation serves as a public exhibition but will also form the academic-artistic landscape underpinning Vangrunderbeek’s PhD defence.

To mark this exhibition, the artist’s book Through and Through will be published by ARA / MER. Paper Kunsthalle, in co-production with Netwerk and the KU Leuven Faculty of Architecture.
