°1975, Geel. Lives and works in Antwerp
Lieven Segers typically seeks out situations or concepts where part of the outcome is left to coincidence, or to the interventions of others. In many ways his drawings, publications, editions, sculptures, installations, and actions challenge the conventions of the (commercial) art world. His work is ephemeral, coincidental, collaborative. The idea of creating a momentum, making something happen, sharing an experience is what drives his art. The spontaneous and serendipitous nature of his practice is an homage to our shared daily banalities; to the small, seemingly insignificant incidents and encounters that, however, can carry much meaning and beauty in the course of a lifetime.
