Nick Ervinck, a rising star in the Belgian art world, explores the borders between various media, including 3D Printing, and tries to find an interaction between virtual constructions and hand-made sculptures. Through his sculptures, videos, prints and digital drawings, he creates fantastic new realities which challenge viewers to take a fresh look at the world around them. As of this month, the historic city center of Belgium’s oldest town, Tongeren, features a sculpture by this renowned artist. The sculpture is inspired by the town’s most celebrated statue, the Jupiter Giant, and enjoys a prominent position in front of the Gallo-Romeins Museum, one of the most important archaeological museums in Europe. To celebrate this new statue, the museum is holding a solo exhibition of Nick Ervinck’s works, The 9th Month (De 9de Maand), which includes several pieces 3D printed here at Materialise. The exhibition runs from September 15th, 2012 - January 6th, 2013.
