belgian artist filip dujardin is also an architectural photographer by profession and extends his fascination with the artform through his fictional building series – his latest works being shown as part of his solo exhibition at highlight gallery in san francisco. dujardin’s photomontages are a collection of impossible structures created using a digital collaging technique from photographs of real buildings in and around ghent, belgium.

 

most of his architectural creations are structurally implausible, however, seem perfectly ordinary at first glance, revealing their absurdity only as the viewer notices missing or incongruous details. the opus lays claim to his belgian cultural heritage, referencing surrealists such as rené magritte and raoul servais – carefully weaving the surreal into the rich urban language.
