Peter Rogiers

Peter Rogiers was born in Antwerp, Belgium, in 1967 and now lives and works in Oud-Heverlee, also in Belgium.

His sculptural works range widely between abstraction and figuration. The key trait of Rogiers’ sculptures is their immense spatial presence, aesthetically filling their periphery.

Rogiers takes many points of reference from the tradition of sculpting. Paramount figures, such as Brancusi and Richard Serra, as well as B-movies and comic books play a big role in his conception. He explores his possibilities in sculpting, often incorporating found objects with his own materials.

His works have been shown in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, and in Northern America. Important shows include the Stedelijk Museum in Gent (2007), the MUHKA in Antwerp (1997), and the MARTa Herford, Germany (2008).

The artist’s works have also been included in the collections of, among others, that of the Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst in Antwerp and the Ministerie van de Vlaamse Gemeenschap Vlaams Bouwmeester in The Hague.
