HISK - Laureates 2009

While in Ghent to visit the Lineart Art Fair, we also went to see La Conquête de l'Espace exhibition at HISK - Higher Institute for Fine Arts.

The Earth seen from the moon - Maarten Vanden Eynde (Belgium)

Sunset - Frederik Van Simaey - (Belgium)

Plastic Reef - Maarten Vanden Eynde (Belgium)
The artist collected waste from the plastic garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean. He's joining a new expedition to the area, bringing back more waste to make his eco-artwork grow.

Mike Carremans - (Belgium)

Of Other Spaces - Sarah Westphal (Germany)

Niklaus Rüegg - (Switserland)
The artist cut up his paintings from the last year to make an outdoor installation.

Many videos among the works.

sorry ... no name here ... if someone knows I'll be happy to add it

... same here.

Niklaus Rüegg - (Switserland)

Just a few of the Laureates from 2009 here. Not showing pictures from all the students does not mean their work isn't interesting; sometimes my pictures are just not good enough to publish.
