About the Artist
Maarten Vanden Eynde’s artistic practice is brought about in sculpture, photography, installation and performance and is often context-related. The question of how we will look back on the present day in the future is invariably implicit in his work. Since 2003, Vanden Eynde has been working on the science he has invented: Genetology, the science of first things. This science is opposed to the current dominant science of last things, Eschatology. The main field of study of Genetology is our fascination with time and the consequences of this: How will we look back on the past in the future? What will be left from the present?
