A Sculpture Link Knokke-Heist 2020 with global reach

Antoine Leclercq plays with the duality between the massive side of the raw material (in this case Corten steel) and the unexpected flexibility of the fine art of ironwork. It’s important to remember that Cortensteel is a self-patinated steel with a deliberate surface corrosion, mostly used outdoors for its beautiful rust-coloured patina and its resistance to the weather conditions.
Passionate about gardens and wide open spaces, Antoine belongs to a school of refinement which turns its back to any notion of unnecessary embellishments. The artist prefers simple and essential forms, with the desire to reveal a certain belief in the pure, almost sacred beauty of things.
Inspired by nature, his works tend to lean towards abstraction while remaining familiar, sensual and organic. Antoine Leclerq’s moving sculptures adorn our gardens like elegant punctuation marks, a dot on the letter “i”, or an ornament draped around the neck of a beautiful woman.
They allow for a new perspective of a place or a space, and participate in a subtle dialogue with their environment.

The walk (or bike ride) runs along the sea dyke from Het Zoute towards Heist-West, and ends at CC Scharpoord, where from the 8th to the 16th August, the 45th edition of Art Nocturne Knocke takes place.
