Gijs Van Vaerenbergh is a partnership founded by Pieterjan Gijs (Leuven, 1983) and Arnout van Vaerenbergh (Leuven, 1983), who have been creating projects together since 2007. Their work consists of site-specific interventions, installations and constructions that generate a mutual reaction with their environment. This results in a artistic practice devoted to a research into the fundaments of constructing itself and their impact on the spectator. Next to these experimental projects, Gijs Van Vaerenbergh also creates architectural projects in which they make use of the results of their experimental works. As such, they follow a trajectory in two directions: from experiment to architecture, and the other way around.
