"Fierens has the rebellious and challenging look of a poet determined to upset the flattening of our imaginary. Its deeply desacralizing and incisive tone finds in the assault and violence of the advertising and journalistic language a privileged way to intervene critically about reality, giving expression to an alternative and dissident visuality. The focus of his work within the field of collage focuses on his poetic vision, a transgressive vision that is involved in a persistent game of contradictions to end up in a hybrid entity halfway between the plastic and the purely poetic: collage-poem. The aesthetic option of Luc Fierens is nourished by the fragment, the deviation, and above all a will of critical activation that is not very present in the field of collage.” — Silvio De Gracia
Luc Fierens is a collagist and a Belgian visual poet. The provocative character of his works, produced since the early eighties, earned him the nickname of "enfant terrible". He is young, compared to the greatest exponents of the international neo-avant-garde, but "terribly effective" in carrying forward his message with commitment and radicalism. His work emerged out of Poesia Visiva, Mail Art and Fluxist circles. As such, he promoted a transnational dialogue prior to the inception of the Internet with his mail art projects ("Social-Art", "Cornucopiae.") and publications (Postfluxpostbooklets) from 1984.
