Jan De Cock

Jan De Cock (b. Etterbeek, Brussels, 2 May 1976) is a contemporary Belgian visual artist. De Cock creates large structures – usually in plywood – that refer to early modernist and suprematist sculpture and architecture. He also creates photographical and video work. He was educated in Ghent and Brussels. In 2003 he entered in the competition Prix de la Jeune Peinture Belge ("Prize for Young Belgian Painters"). After Luc Tuymans he was only the second Belgian artist to have an exposition in Tate Modern.

De Cock is the first living Belgian artist that gets an exhibition in MoMA, which opened on January 23, 2008. In the interview he states: ... our understanding of the artwork is not fixed, but constantly changes and mentions Alain Resnais, Jean-Luc Godard and Eadweard Muybridge. Jan De Cocks oeuvre has echoes of Donald Judds Minimalist aesthetic and treatment of space as well as Marcel Broodthaerss questioning of the context of art.
