Franky Verdickt

TOTEM (2010)

Building – and with it, urbanisation – is the way in which man has succeeded in bringing an inherently hostile nature under control and securing his own place in it. A flat or house is not just a utilitarian object, but also a totem, a flag planted in the ground, an marker of territory. It is the way that space is structured, brought under control, and ultimately transformed in a home. Franky Verdickt shows us these newly erected totems, shortly before people move into them and become part of their history.

Biography

Franky Verdickt (Belgium, 1971) investigates notions about an ideal society, and exposes the friction between the desire for perfection, and the impossibility of achieving it in reality. He took his masters in photography from the Hogeschool Sint Lukas in Brussels.
