Lieven De Boeck's work can be seen as a research about language and space, going from literature, art, architecture and urbanism to the different strategies of organizing, distributing and handling information. He researches how context defines meaning, how strategies construct that context, and how spaces are appropriated in the process. De Boeck aims to go beyond that fixed definition and to find new paths of reading within the given structures.
The rise of identity politics of the past has given voice to many that had been denied that voice, but many are still marginalized and ignored. Every effort must be made to ensure that those who have something to say have a place to speak and an audience to listen. The importance of this work cannot be underestimated. The current work of studio Lieven De Boeck aims to install such an environment of inclusion and bien-être.
Lieven De Boeck had solo exhibitions at the Frac Paca, Marseilles (France), the Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens and Extra City Kunsthal in Antwerp (Belgium), Kunstraum München (Germany), LMAK projects, New York (USA), as well as at the Fonderie Darling in Montreal (Canada). In 2017 the first monography of the artist was published.
