This sculpture was designed following a period of studying medical manuals and fruitful collaboration between the artist and two medical professors. As a result, AGRIEBORZ resembles the anatomy of a larynx (or voice box) “going wild” over the entire figure.
Fostering cross-pollination between the digital and the physical, Nick Ervinck (°1981, Belgium) explores the boundaries between various media as well as the aesthetic potential of sculpture, 3D prints, animation, installation, architecture, and design.
Through his sculptural objects, Nick examines spatial positioning and points to the phenomenological experience and the embodiment of space. These works oscillate between the static and the dynamic and reinvigorate the capacity of the ornament and the void in order to conceptualize new virtual or utopian territories transformed into reality through the use of sculpt and 3D Printing.
