In fact, this and Buggenhout’s other works are incredibly realistic renderings, carefully made in the artist’s studio but suggesting unidentifiable ruins. In confusing viewers, Buggenhout’s sculpture raises questions around the subjects artists choose as their models and the strong influence of projection on the way art is perceived.
The objects here intimate the theme of the ‘ruin’ that surfaces through art history, but in its more direct and subversive mood. These works convey an organic, blurred relationship between representation and abstraction that breaks down perceived assumptions about the way objects are classified and understood.
