L’OrigineWill Beckers (NL)

A giant metallic shell appears in the Gardens of Europe. Contrasting at first glance with the green nature, this sculpture reflects our modern world. As you enter, you feel the heartbeat of Mother Nature. A moment to take the pulse of the world…
Made with natural and sustainable materials, L’Origine resonates the relationship between man and nature. The installation invites the viewer to enter the work to live an interactive experience, awaken their senses and develop their perceptions. Sculptor and architect of nature, Will Beckers explores the paradox of man who draws inspiration from nature while destroying it. A return to the origins…


Born in the Netherlands, visual artist Will Beckers lives and works in Belgium. Committed to the environmental cause, his installations and works of public art showcase the dialogue and interaction between culture, nature and the environment.
