2013, resin, sansevieria, rope 110x80x10
The first sculpture in a series based on constructed myth. The sculpture imprisons a symbol that could be either a cross or a sword made out of the leaves of a sansevieria.



2013, 6 ink and watercolour drawings 70x100
The "Gratie" series consists of six drawings of objects that, when put together, get a strong symbolic feel. They become multi-layered as methaphors and at the same time they start functioning as simple visual symbols.



ABOUT

In his interdisciplinary practice, Ignace Cami (°1986, BE) takes folk culture as a starting point to make objects, sculptures, installations and writings. He thereby activates the contemporary meaning of local history.



Trained as a printmaker and sculptor, Cami started moving towards more active and social ways of distributing his projects. Each project creates a new platform for social interaction. By emphasizing familiarity in his own tender and playful way, he pushes the boundaries of performativity and storytelling.

 

He also ran the artist run CRYING space with Ward Zwart and is a part of collaborative projects like Haas & Gaai, Boris & Kitchenknife and Nestvlieders.
