MAARTEN VANDEN EYNDE TOYS WITH HISTORY

It is curious to ponder the end of the world, as doing so can either create a feeling of helplessness and despair or of joy at the prospect of a brand new beginning. Visual artist Maarten Vanden Eynde tends toward the latter, choosing to play with the concept of historical/archaeological fact and fiction by producing sculptures that through their very existence indicate that there is finally very little distinction between the two.
