Iwein De Keyzer (°1985, Aalst, BE) lives and works in Aalst (BE). By combining photography, collage techniques and found objects, he creates work that is both evident and imaginary. Developed intuitively, with the attitude of a bricoleur working with what is there. Driven by his interest in architecture and graphics, both urban and rural areas are Iwein’s fields of work. Fascinated on the one hand by man’s interventions in a natural environment, on the other by nature trying to manifest itself in urbanized territory. Place and context are crucial in his work and serve as starting points in his creative process. This process reveals the wonder of an (outdoor) environment and captures what is there but often overlooked.Iwein is also teaching at the Academy of Fine Arts in Aalst and is co-founder of ROTOR, a place that offers space and time for artistic creation, experimentation and presentation.
