I really enjoy the way Dedobbeleer titles his works -- the pieces are often visually complex, combining recognizable everyday objects and contemporary sculptural materials to create something often esoteric, with numerous avenues of possible interpretation. The artist’s titles, then, provide a poetic guide toward possible meanings, narrowing the multitude down a more manageable series of potential paths.
Dedobbeleer’s works are as much introspective as they are political, often looking at how personal identity is influenced by economic and governmental forces. The frequent juxtaposition of heavy, cold, sculpted metal and moments of oddly fragmented everyday detritus serve to simultaneously tie the personal to the global and emphasize the separation between the two.
