The Belgian artist Peter Buggenhout (b. 1963, Dendermonde, lives and works in Ghent) questions the status of sculpture with sculptures and installations that are made with materials that refer to life and transiency. The sculptures are made of intestines of animals, blood, dust and hair, but the artist also uses clay and recycled wood. Because of their structure and texture, the works transcend the familiar and the recognizable. For his project in the Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Buggenhout makes an installation that provides a context and creates an area of tension for several large sculptures.
