1.Tell us what you do and your beginnings.
I am an artist who began exhibiting quite early on with Albert Baronian Gallery in Belgium and later with Galleria Continua in Italy and currently work with Michel Rein Gallery in Brussels and in Paris. In 1999 I received the Belgian Art Prize.
In 2007 I was invited by Robert Storr to the 52nd Venice Biennale for the internationnal pavillion. I have also exhibited in Foundation Mirò in Barcelona, MAMAM in Brazil, CGAC Santiago de Compostelle, Tank in Shanghai and last year a solo survey at the Centrale for Contemporary Art Brussels.
2.What are your favorite museums in the world? Why?
I love the Kröller-Müller Museum because when i was a child I had my first strong feelings about art looking at the Mondrian paintings there.
