With his wall print KOROBS, Nick Ervinck explores the possibilities between design, sculpture and architecture. This sculpture is situated in the world between the virtual and the real. By copy-pasting, montage and collage, Ervinck designs virtual and abstract forms. This eclectic technique enables him to create what can hardly be thought of, or what cannot be made by hand. KOROBS tells a story of 'becoming', for the sculpture looks like a living, dynamic substance, which keeps on growing and transforming. The structure seems to be the result of a spontaneous, natural growing process. At the same time, the shiny yellow colour seems to contradict the organic, and gives the sculpture the allure of an artefact. With KOROBS, references to Henry Moore and the modernist sculptors are evident.
