In his artistic work Kristof Vrancken (°1982, BE) explores the forgotten in-between spaces, places that are part of a no man’s land. As a gatherer Vrancken searches subtle remains of human activities, which he captures in his pictures.
In his most recent work Vrancken not only uses nature as a passive subject but also as an active ingredient of his work. By developing his tactile pictures with local plant extracts he strengthens the relationship between the physical place and the image. As a post-digital artisan he incorporates the entropically character as an integral part of the work. Doing so he forces us to rethink our relationship with time and nature.
Kristof Vrancken studied photography at the LUCA School of Arts, where he is active as a researcher and teacher since 2008. In 2014 he started a PhD in the research group Inter-Actions at the LUCA School of Arts, called The Sustainist Gaze.
