About Benoist Van Borren

Benoist Van Borren is a skilled minimalist sculptor.
He masters the art of cast concrete, bringing to life this rough, dense material and its monolithic blocks.
Each of these blocks presents us with an enigma to decipher. They are the results of abstract mathematics and geometric games, guided by an indiscernable golden number, fruits from the imagination of an architect with an artists soul.
Caskets from a subversive subconscious, which question, and stimulate our contemplation and observations.
Everything is order and hieratic beauty in this silent gallery.
Benoist’s dense and massive blocks witness the intensity of his fascination for a complex art in his conception, and skilled refinement of its appearance.



Benoist Van Borren ou l’art à l’état brut !

Benoist Van Borren est un sculpteur adepte du minimalisme. Il dompte le béton, cette matière rude et dense et ses blocs monolithiques prennent vie.

Chacun de ces blocs nous offre une énigme à décrypter : enfants d’une abstraction mathématique guidée par un nombre d’or insaisissable, jeux géométriques fruits de l’imagination d’un architecte à l’âme d’artiste, écrins d’un inconscient subversif qui interroge notre regard.

Tout n’est qu’ordre et beautés hiératiques dans cette galerie silencieuse. Les blocs denses et massifs de Benoist témoignent de la force de son attrait pour un art complexe dans sa conception et savamment épuré dans son apparition.
