Bernd LohausEnvironment-conscious artists such as Bernd Lohaus (b. 1940) tried to achieve a different spatial and territorial experience with wooden beams and blocks of stone. The heterogeneity of installations by Leo Copers (b. 1947) addressed contrasts between art and reality. Artists often intended a combination of materials to reflect the concept of an action or even the object itself. Richard Long thus became a model for such artists as Carel Visser.
Wide White SpaceWide White Space was a gallery created by Anny De Decker et Bernd Lohaus in Antwerp. Opened in 1966, the Wide White Space closed in 1976. See Wide White Space, behind the museum, exhibition catalogue, La Société des Expositions du Palais des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles; MAC, galeries contemporaines des Musées de Marseille, 1994-1996.
Guillaume BijlSince the 1980s artists have diversified materials and concepts and have thus distanced themselves from reality. Intuition and unexpected associations create sculptural expressions that could convey powerful inner feelings, in a world between abstraction and new figuration. On a monumental scale, Guillaume Bijl (b. 1946) displayed life-size interiors of spaces in daily life.
