Sancho Don't Care
Ory Dessau ed.
In his art practice, Willem Boel (°1983, Sint-Niklaas; lives and works in Ghent) establishes an expanded field of sculpture. He thematizes sculpture as performance, as architecture, as machinery. His works are situated on the intersection between monuments/structures, kinetic sculptures, gigantic props, and stage sets. Most of Boel’s works circulate through one another. Each work literally conceals and continues the other works, creating an ongoing flow of material elements and conceptual approaches.
Sancho Don’t Care is Boel’s first monograph, covering ten years of intensive work. It offers a comprehensive overview of a process which is still evolving.
