Frédéric Platéus

Collection Uhoda

19225 Rue Saint Paul

Frédéric Platéus is a figurehead of the graffiti scene in Belgium and has developed an artistic career with many influences, including his attraction to technology and his admiration for science fiction. Fascinated by the Rubik’s Cube, the artist explores the infinite formal possibilities of the brain teaser by creating Solid Rock. Composed of pyramidal branches unfolding into space, the artwork seems to be an object coming straight out of a science fiction movie. From the fourth dimension, the artist also explores the feeling of illusion by integrating mirrors onto the walls of his sculpture that allow him to play with the perceptions of the spectator. By moving around the artwork, the spectator can observe both the environment and his own presence reflected on the surface of the sculpture, giving a feeling of infinite reading of Frédéric Platéus’ artwork.
