Baronian is pleased to announce an exhibition of works by Eric Duyckaerts.
After studying philosophy and law, Duyckaerts eventually found his way into contemporary art. In 1980, he co-founded the Liège-based artists’ collective Groupov alongside Michel Delamarre, François Sikivie, Monique Ghysens, Jacques Delcuvellerie, Francis Landrain and Jany Pimpaud. Groupov explored the potential of theater, inspired by Fluxus, Happenings, Black Mountain College and Julian Beck’s Living Theater.
Duyckaert’s oeuvre consists of performances, videos, drawings and installations. His works are rooted in his desire to sabotage the current discourse on art. They respond to formal logics: games with letters, numbers and typographical signs that invite the visitor to a playful, jubilant experience of thought.
Eric Duyckaerts represented Belgium at the Venice Biennale in 2007.
