With KOMANIL, Nick Ervinck brings into question the opposition between the conventional architectural space (box) and the virtual design (blob). He translates this opposition to a new level by transforming the sculpture into a large ceiling ornament in this virtual, non-existent space. This breaks with the classic vertical presentation of artworks on a wall or in the room.
Nick Ervinck creates an interesting dialogue between the organic design and the architecture surrounding it. This results in a thin line between virtual and real, between immaterial and material. Ervinck’s aim is to let architecture and sculpture meet, and to explore the realm of the impossible by constantly pushing the limits of what we call ‘realistic’.
