Vincent Scheers (b.1990) is a belgian artist living and working in Munich, whose mediums span painting, printmaking and sculpture. Scheers studied printmaking and fine Art at the Royal Academy of Antwerp. In 2023 he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.
He participated in international group exhibitions and has had solo exhibitions at Gallery Jos Joos (Brussels), Forbidden City (Antwerp), Kunstverein St. Georgen (DE), Sharp Projects (Copenhagen) and Paulina Caspari (DE).
In line with the philosophers’ Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s idea that “art begins with the animal,”the point of departure of Scheers’s artistic practice begins with human-animal relations. At times, his art even sets animals, plants and microorganisms in opposition to the human world by subjecting them to the logic of manmade systems. Philosophic paradigms on power and discipline inform Scheers’s research. A key thesis of his artistic practice thus posits that refracting institutionalized power through interspecies relations, exposes society’s prioritization of control over care.
