Conrad Willems (1983, Ostend) is an artist from Belgium with an art practice shifting between sculpting, drawing and performance.
The origin of his work is found in his interest in construction, deconstruction and architecture, often tracing back to the basic shapes of wooden toy building sets. Classically trained in ballet, his body movements function as an intermediate between his two and three dimensional works.
His sculptures are constructed rather than sculpted. He works with freestanding pieces that are stacked on top of each other, remaining unfixed to each other. These modular installations are often constructed for a live audience. The building process thus becomes a performance, the resulting construction an installation work.
