This mural sculpture was recently completed by Belgian painter and sculptor Stefaan De Croock (aka Strook) as part of the Mechelen Muurt Project. This installation is on the side of an old furniture factory in Mechelen, Belgium and it’s made by piecing together discarded wooden planks, doors, and furniture. Titled “Elsewhere“, the piece is the result of meticulous scavenging, mindful planning, and skilled construction.
De Croock told My Modern Met.
Every recycled sculpture or mural has it own story. In this case, the wall on which I constructed the installation was also an inspiration. The melancholic, fragile pose of the figure symbolizes a person in the comfort of his home, where he is truly himself.
