Felipe van Laar
buildings under construction or in decline
Felipe studied architecture and turned visual arts shortly after his graduation. From his architectural background, he creates large spatial installations and sculptures. His main focus herein is on the fragile side of architecture.
Felipe’s inspiration comes from buildings in which the tipping point between materiality and meaning is made tactile: buildings under construction or in decline, a half-finished structure or the back of a façade. Felipe is fascinated by the precise moment at which sacredness appears in architectural form. His works present themselves often as indefinite and unfinished, as snapshots of this search towards something higher, captured in time.
