"Our lives are hyper-real, and we feel the urge to continuously pimp, remix, recollect our own identity," says Pieterjan Ginckels. "As such, I see myself as an embedded outsider, playing with ambivalences in speed and authenticity." The Belgian artist's work concerns itself with the acceleration of modern life and he demonstrates this through exhibitions and experiences that interweave spatial, artistic and design practice, and everything in between. Performative in nature, Ginckels received attention for his installation PISTE, a velodrome within a museum, and S.P.A.M. Office, a surreal office environment dedicated to finding order within the detritus of electronic communication. (ICON Magazine, 'Future 50,' 2013)
