LANDMARKS: Conrad Willems

Conrad Willems is a visual artist from Ghent who mainly works with drawings, sculptures and performances. In his recognizable style, he will mount a statue as part of the Landmarks series.
His works are characterized by geometry, repetition and modularity. Both in his drawings and in his sculptures, he strips archetypal architectural forms of their functionality. Willems' sculptures are often built up live, transforming the building up phase into as a sort of performance art. Here he plays with the components of his work: building blocks can be disassembled, combined and reconstructed in order to explore the used material and building techniques.
