Xavier Mary - Victory over the sun - MER. 2022
Born in 1982 in Liège, Xavier Mary lives and works in Brussels.
His post-industrial sculpture and post-apocalyptic, mythical realism stand with one leg in the past and the other into the future. In a bold manner which almost suggests artificial intelligence to be landed into a prehistorical past, the Belgian artist interweaves elements of mythology and technology to create an ‘applied metaphysics 2.0’, wandering in an unorthodox style through history, present and future by reflecting on topics such as modern civilisation, humankind, mass consumption and mystical idolatry in a visually poetical way that combines absurd cleverness with technological motorised skills.
