The exhibition focuses on the link between science and art in the AZ Delta

Nick Ervink, artist: “I’ve always been fascinated by science. Anatomy specifically. But of course also technology. 3D printing for example, which also makes this quick connection to the world of medicine. And of course I dream about some kind of fictional organs or for cyborgs in the future” .

Cyborgs, half-man-half-machine fantasy creatures, are central to this series of heads and busts: from sketches to detailing, 3D printed. “To get into a dialogue in the hospital in this way: Where do we come from, where are we going. It’s kind of a fantasy image from games and science fiction, but also an image made real.”

In the footsteps of Da Vinci

And that is exactly the purpose of this project. Bringing art and science together here at Radar, this is the center of innovation at AZ Delta. Pieterjan Durnez, Rad-Art: “Because we saw that art and science are not always so far apart. We look at da Vinci who was one of the pioneers of combining art and science. And to that extent, we also thought of bringing this concept together within Rad-Art.”

The free exhibition, which features the work of Nick Ervink, runs through October 20.
