PLUS-ONE Gallery participates at the Belgian Art & Design Fair, October 19 till 22 2023 with a small solo presentation of Victor Verhelst. In addition to some works he created in 2022 and 2023 Victor Verhelst will also present video work which was on view at CORE Festival and its imperious tapestry for Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe's 'Ode to a Love Lost' he created earlier this year for Toneelhuis.
Victor Verhelst (°1997) is a Belgian visual artist.
Victor Verhelst’s autonomous artwork consists of very diverse mediums: from keeping it digital, to unique riso print pieces, from large wall tapestries to works with interactive game technology but always starting from his digital canvas where his ongoing series ‘Trippy Vegas' are born: his conception of a growing digital city consisting of virtual cityscapes and buildings.
The distortion and juxtaposition of 2D and 3D image planes in the creation of figurative color combinations characterises his aesthetics. Printed matter - from digital to 3D, from risography to textile - forms his starting point, always working with the relationship of the materiality to the pre-made (digital) image.
