Wesley Meuris (°1977) is a Belgian artist. His drawings, sculptures and installations present a strongly architectural, or even scientific, character. Things which could, at first glance, appear as devices for presenting works or other artefacts, are, in fact, works of art in themselves. By bringing these mechanisms and demonstration objects to light, Wesley Meuris points at our way of presenting and seeing things. By exhibiting, for example, animal cages left empty or a theme park kiosk, inanimate and reduced to its simplest apparatus, he hopes to show us things which usually escape our view but which, nonetheless, play a primordial role in our daily interpretation of the world which surrounds us. His sculptures and installations are often accompanied by drawings and analytical schemas which strengthen the functional character of these subjects.
