Johan Bruninx experiments with materials and techniques, mixing past and future to create the unexpected. Forgotten objects, rediscovered under layers of dust, are saved from their destiny to end up as waste. Old toys from the attic, a collection of rare bugs or second hand furniture are transformed to something meaningful and given back their right to longevity as a piece of art. Johan graduated in 2007 from the Design Academy in Eindhoven and lives & works in Hasselt. He was selected for Toegepast 14.
