Fred Eerdekens (1951) is a visual artist, living and working in Hasselt, Belgium. Mainly, Eerdekens works in three dimensions with the components language, material, light and shadow. The basis for his works are the texts he writes himself. He often generates opposite notions, sometimes words contradict each other and meaning shifts and turns about. His very sculptural body of work provides the impetus for a world which can only be imagined through words. In the shadows, where the light fails, a story of things lacking is often told, sometimes short, sometimes lyrical or longing. Besides these sculptural works, Eerdekens draws in a variety of techniques and materials, but most often in watercolour.
