Kaspar Hamacher

Born (°1981) and lives in Belgium

With a degree from the Academie Beeldende Kunsten in Maastricht, the Netherlands, Kaspar Hamacher, originally from Belgium’s Eastern Cantons, takes nature as the starting point in his daily life as a sculptor and a designer of artistic furniture. Monoxyle purity blooms from sylvan beauty. Raised in woodlands by his forest ranger father, he has forged a unique and very personal path through the world of art and design, winding his way between sculpture and the contemporary applied arts. Far from the rush of our digital world, Kaspar Hamacher creates a close and unique connection with each fragment of trunk he sculpts, crafting unique stamped pieces out of his own creative energy. He resolutely focuses on the object in all its physical strength, more as a “maker” than a conceptual designer. His abilities with wood, as a living material, are the fruit of his energy and his imagination: whether working with a tree stump or a piece of leather, for him it is essential to respect authenticity at every step of the creative process. In his design approach, which he has called “Die Werkstatt” (The Workshop) since his 2017 exhibition at Spazio Nobile, Hamacher always aims to create a piece that is both unique and personal, with a strong meaning and added soul. “Le Sacre de la Matière” reflects his authenticity, while “Mother Earth” is at the heart of his identity, the eponymous title of his solo exhibition at CID Hornu which ran from June to September 2021. Spazio Nobile has represent Kaspar Hamacher since 2016. He will be shown jointly with photographer Jo Magrean in the gallery’s Studiolo in Autumn 2021.
