The work of Nick Ervinck connects the worlds of virtual construction and hand-made sculpture. The virtual world of this artist is 'strange'. It is a fiction filled with polymorphic, synthetic forms that invade seemingly authentic rooms, monumental buildings which are detached from the ground and made into living sculptures and daring combinations of ships, churches and skyscrapers floating over an endless sea. It is a world constructed and deconstructed by its creator, a surreal place rising from the combination of forms and a play with volumes, proportions and colours. Prints, video's and digital drawings are used to create installations and sculptures.
In 2005 Nick Ervinck received the Godecharle prize for Sculpture. In 2006 he received the Mais prize of the City Brussels and the Prize for Visual Art of West-Flanders. In 2008 he was awarded by the Rodenbach fonds.
