Artists

Peter Rogiers
Peter Rogiers is a sculptor whose works range widely between abstraction and figuration, and are characterized by an immense spatial presence, with multiple references to the art-historical canon. Paramount figures, such as Brancusi and Richard Serra, play an important role, as do B-movies and comic books. In his work, Rogiers explores the boundaries of contemporary sculpture, which he crafts combining found objects with his own creative inventions.
His works have been shown in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, and in Northern America. Important solo shows include Middelheim Museum, Antwerp (2016), Cultuurcentrum Belgica, Dendermonde (2012), MARTa Herford, Germany (2008), Stedelijk Museum, Gent (2007), Openluchmuseum voor Beeldende Kunst Middelheim, Antwerp (2000) and MUHKA, Antwerp (1997). Significant group exhibitions include Middelheim Museum, Antwerp (2015/16), Museum Beelden aan Zee, Antwerp (2015), Blickachsen 10, Bad Homburg (2015), Museumpark, Rotterdam (2014), BKV Potsdam e.V., Potsdam (2013/14), Cultuurcentrum Strombeek, Ghent (2013), Museum To Scale, Brussels (2012), SMAK Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst, Gent (2011/12), Modemuseum Hasselt (2011), MARTa Herford Museum für zeitgenössische Kunst, Herford (2008), Speelhoven, Aarschot (2006), Voorkamer, Lier (2004), and the Roof Terrace of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington D.C.
