Elias Cafmeyer(BE)

Tuesday 14 November

Elias Cafmeyer (Roeselare, 1990) lives and works in Antwerp and mainly makes sculptures, video installations and site specific work. His work revolves around public space and its use within the city. He is fascinated by urban development, traffic signs and the city landscape as a metaphor for social construction. Apart from his video installations, Elias often uses raw, industrial materials such as metal, untreated wood, concrete… His proposals for site specific work are presented as scale models and could be seen as work on itself.

Lecture abstract

A city is composed, formed and shaped throughout history. The image that we have of it today is a shattered one: urban fragments broken into small non coherent pieces.
