Studio Luc Derycke
In February 2015 the Belgian artist and philosopher Ief Spincemaille set up a temporary second atelier at the workshop of Velo, a socio-economic working place that recycles old bicycles in Leuven, Belgium. During a period of 9 months, he hacked the existing production line and recycled old paintings instead of bicycles. He applied the repetitional production process of disassembling, storing, and reassembling to works of art. He re-used the raw materials of the 284 recycled paintings for the recreation of 5 pioneering works in modern art history by a.o. Damien Hirst, Ellsworth Kelly, and Kasimir Malevich.
