1965 , Belgium

Using sculpture as a medium to embody the unconscious, Belgian sculptor Johan Tahon creates melting, elongated human and animal figures. His oversized plaster head sculptures challenge existential notions of space and reality, making intangible human emotions visible. One critic wrote that by “following his obsessive creative urge, he tries to make dreams, fantasies, and images appear.” Tahon draws inspiration from classical Greek and Byzantine sculptural styles, as well as modernist sculptors like Alberto Giacometti. The artist’s raw, unpolished works expose the physicality of his artistic process. Tahon, who studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent, has exhibited in Belgium, the Netherlands, Turkey, and Italy.
