Peter Buggenhout (1963, Dendermonde) constructs sculptural installations out of industrial and found materials. At first sight, his works look like the remains of destroyed or abandoned structures. Beneath the constructions’ formal complexity, however, lies a carefully developed internal logic. Buggenhout works with what he describes as abject material: everyday objects detached from their original context and then reused. By covering many of his sculptures with dust, he attempts to neutralize any symbolic value.
