Joris Van de Moortel

Joris Van de Moortel (b. 1983) lives and works in Belgium.


Joris Van de Moortel, Like a hurricane (you are like), Installation view, 2010, Galerie Michael Janssen Berlin

Joris Van de Moortel’s (b. 1983) practice and work consist of a complex web of ideas and references with a process-related and performative approach. It combines different disciplines and is characterized by a radical deployment of material in which predicted chance or “planned accidents” play a central role. His practice disrupts all expectations of what sculpture can be and plays with notions of referentiality. Similar to Marcel Broodthaers, Van de Moortel uses found or discarded material in order to create new objects and meaning from existing things.
