Koen Deprez is a hermit who considers every detail of the landscape, but simultaneously builds towers to oversee the world. This tension brings forth creations in which scale shifts, misled girders, stories, anecdotes and hiatuses take the shape of a baroque labyrinth of which only the artist knows the entire plan.
Deprez lives and works near Brussels (Belgium). In addition to his design practice, he teaches at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Leuven. He exhibits, amongst others, at Storefront for Art and Architecture (New York), Museum of Decorative Arts (Ghent), Horta Museum (Brussels), Provincial Museum (Hasselt), Sint-Lukas Gallery (Brussels), Museum of Finnish Architecture (Helsinki), Nietzsche Archive (Weimar), Kunsthal (Rotterdam), Deutsches Architektur Museum (Frankfurt am Main), Gammel Dok (Copenhagen), Fundação das Descobertas (Lisbon), Norton Gallery of Art (West Palm Beach), Grande Arche, Paris-La Défense (Paris), Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam), SMAK (Ghent), Lokaal 01 (Breda) and Pierre Menard Gallery (Boston).
