Maarten Vanden Eynde
Born in Leuven (Belgium), works in Brussels (Belgium), works in Rotterdam (Netherlands), works in Saint Mihiel (France).
Since 2003, Vanden Eynde has been developing an invented field of research called Genetology – the science of first things – as a personal counter-perspective to the existing science of Eschatology – the science of last things. Touching on numerous subjects of social and political relevance such as post-industrialism, capitalism and ecology, the exhibits in this exhibition will offer a perspective on the condition of society at the beginning of the 21st Century. Presenting these unusual objects, all constructed from a variety of natural and artificial materials, Vanden Eynde continues to build up a body of material research through the methodology of looking back towards the modern origins of “progress”.
