- 1983 Belgium -
After his studies at the Institut Saint-Luc Tournai, at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest and at the Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg, Guillaume Ninove set up his studio in Brussels.
He centres his work mainly on architectural structure. His subject evokes both a nostalgic return to the city of his birth and an individual eye for the shapes and the wanderings of contemporary architecture. Executed with a near-surgical precision, placed on wooden boxes, the architectural constructions are arranged in such a way as to accentuate to the maximum the isolation of the structure. Guillaume Ninove uses the recovered materials and waste of our consumer society. He recycles and transmutes this waste from the ordinary into architectural structures as fictional as they are real.
