The work of Fabrice Samyn is characterized by a great diversity, both formally (painting, photography, sculpture, installations, performance, participative practice..) and thematically (time and light, the problematics of representation in our society, the articulation between idolatry and iconoclasm or any other duality). To investigate our idea of time, he gets inspired by different conceptual and pictural traditions, and by (occidental and oriental) spiritual traditions.
