Luc Deleu

b. 1944 Duffel, Brussels

“Deleu trained as an architect. Rooted in that discipline and logic, his early and mature artwork is conceptual, and continues to engage architectural principles, theories and practices, though in a paradoxical and iconoclastic spirit. He has a passion for cranes, containers, ready-made objects, which he dislocates into contexts that astonish and amaze, the way Gulliver both caused and experienced such wonderment.” Statement that accompanied the map of e v+ a 1994, Curated by Jan Hoet.
