Eric van Hove: Metamodern apparatuses

 
Mahjouba I, 2016

Over de expositie

After years of traveling, artist Eric van Hove (1975, Guelma, Algeria) established the Fenduq, his atelier, in Marrakesh. There, together with his team of Moroccan master craftsmen, the African born Belgian artist has initiated a consistent sculptural interrogation of the role of craft in the 21st century. For his first solo exhibition at (re)D., van Hove will showcase several recent works as well as the first prototype of his acclaimed Mahjouba Initative, which aims at conceiving an electric moped made by craftsmen for the local market on a grand scale. Through the Mahjouba Initative the artist hopes to create a decentralized manufacturing model enabling Morocco’s nearly three million active craftsmen to reconcile with recent industrial history and find a new role for themselves in contemporary Moroccan society.
