Jan & Paul Schietekat

° 1963

Born in Sint-Niklaas (Belgium), lives in Ghent (Belgium).

{C}1.      {C}The oeuvre of the artistic duo, and twin brothers, Jan and Paul Schietekat, is allied to the Belgian tradition of post-surrealist irony, relativism, absurdity and a rather playful/critical stance as concerns the 'sacred' status of the art work within today's visual culture.

Their art may be compared with that of contemporaries like Guillaume Bijl, Patrick Van Caeckenbergh and Wim Delvoye.  They all share a predilection for introducing banal elements and found objects into an art context.
