Dominique Stroobant (°1947, Antwerp) is a Belgian artist living and working in Carrara, Italy. A sculptor and graphic artist, he set up the Floating Stones Group with Kenneth Davis and Philippe Toussaint in 1972. He experimented with his first heliograph, a pinhole camera that photographs the movement of the sun, in 1977. Dominique Stroobant has had numerous solo exhibitions, in Belgium and abroad, and has also participated in group exhibitions and symposia about stone sculpture. He was a close friend of ZERO artist Jef Verheyen, and they collaborated on a number of projects. Throughout his early career, Stroobant recorded anti-authoritarian movements and victim memorials. Stroobant is particularly puzzled by the shapes of things that hint at infinity.
