Hans Op de Beeck (born 1969, Belgium) is visual artist. He lives and works in Brussels, where he has developed his career through international exhibitions over the past ten years. His work consists of sculptures, installations, video work, photography, animated films, drawings, paintings and writing (short stories).
It is his quest for the most effective way of presenting the concrete contents of each work that determines the medium that the artist ultimately selects.Thematically, the work concentrates on our laborious and problematic relationship with time, space and each other. Key themes are the disappearance of distances, the disembodiment of the individual and the abstraction of time that have resulted from globalisation and the changes to our living environment that developments in media, automation and technology have brought about. His work is nourished by a keen interest in social and cultural reflection.
