As an archaeologist Bram Van Breda digs in our common environments in search for new stories to unravel
through the objects, materials and spaces he investigates. Object, material and space play an important role
in his artistic practice, which is situated on the border between art and design. By questioning the
identity of the objects, materials and locations and placing them in a broader perspective he gives the
viewer the opportunity to experience these in a different way. The practice of Van Breda is characterised by
a constant questioning of the own approximate environment, with a fascination for the things we easily pass
by or overlook.
How do we experience locality in a time where we're evolving towards a global culture with different identities?
And what can the objects, materials and spaces we use, mean in this evolution? Each work is part of a broader research and is for this reason never final, rather a step to the next one.
