The Belgian artist Ante Timmermans (born 1976 in Ninove, lives and works in Ghent and Zurich) is one of the most active figures of the contemporary drawing scene. Using very simple techniques for his drawings, which are almost entirely black and white, and obsolete technology in his installations (record players, overhead projectors, etc.), he serves as an accurate eyewitness of our modern times. He notably focuses on issues surrounding the nature/culture debate, and the representation of the modern city as a ghost city, a landscape of numerous skyscrapers, a no-man's land. Both poetically ironic and disenchanted, his work is also a meditation on the pregnancy of language and words in our lives.
