Arne Quinze «Connecting People»
Belgian artist Arne Quinze puts together large, if not massive constructions made of wood, like many bridges linking mankind.
Though his career begins in the 80s with Graffiti, his international claim to fame comes when he builds UCHRONIA, during Burning Man 2006. The 30-meter high & 60 meter-wide wooden arch is set on fire at the end of the festival, and sets his own trail ablaze as an artist.
Wood feels like a warm material to Arne Quinze, who sees cities as open-air museums and ideal stages for his work, destined to spark reactions and social interractions between people.
Between 2008 and 2013, he takes hold of the rue de Louvain, in Brussels, with two huge flaming red pieces: CITYSCAPE and THE SEQUENCE.
In 2009, Armand Hadida commissions Arne Quinze with the complete conceptualization of Leclaireur Sévigné.
