Jan De Cock



 After having the good fortune of being able to post about celebreties like Jan Decleir and Dimitri, I happened to run into  contemporary visual artist Jan De Cock,  yesterday at lunchtime in Brussels.  I hesitated asking him about taking his picture but did not for several reasons.  He seemed rather busy on the phone, I thought he would prefer an incognito lunch  and finally I expected a negative answer. Hence, the phone trick again.
According to his website, he is "considered one of the pioneers of monumental sculptures made in-situ. From his very first sculptures, he has been dealing with the theme of production and with the way an artist relates to the broad, culturally injected concept of modernism... "
