For this trophy Nick Ervinck plays with the tension between tradition and innovation, between the linear and the organic. As an artist, Nick Ervinck stands firmly with one foot in the digital age. He makes frequent use of innovative techniques such as 3D printing. At the same time (art) history and acheology are a very important source of inspiration. Each work is the result of a battle between the physical and the virtual, between reality and the digital world. in ENNERLEI this tension is clearly visible. The pedestal refers to a classic, linear trophy which is then deformed, decontstructed, remodeled, using the dynamics that the blob sculpture entails. The sculpture itself has no single point of reference and stands for the organic and innovation. The yellow blob functions as a Rorschachstain, so every person can see something different in it. This results in a trophy that inspires and intrigues, but also exudes a classic elegance.
