Artist of the Collection

Éric Van de Walle

Born in 1963 at France

Éric Van de Walle’s interdisciplinary practice combines various forms, from design to sculpture, architecture, and the decorative arts. His uniquely pared-down installations are conceived from a “radicality”, a “minimum”, and governed by a principle of “elementarity”, to use the artist’s own words. They respond to functions of use and convenience, although given their appearance, their identification and meaning are not immediately apparent.

Éric Van de Walle was born in France in 1963 where he studied to become a designer. He studied audiovisual design at the University of Metz before graduating from the École Supérieure d’Art de Lorraine. He lives and works in Paris.
