A unique design talent from southern Belgium, Kaspar Hamacher (1981), Eupen (BE) focuses unwaveringly on physically working and crafting word, rather than conceptual design. As he says himself, he regards himself more as a craftsman than a designer. 

Burned, split, hollowed out, struck or sculpted, wood reacts to different processes depending on the circumstances. Hamacherís working methods produce unique, personal pieces. Design but with a deeper meaning: with a soul. Beyond the object itself and the hands-on relationship with the wood there is a kind of spirituality in Hamacherís work. 

He was educated at a Steiner school, where confidence and enthusiasm rather than fear and competition drive learning, and he is dedicated to forming a profound relationship between man and nature. 

The CID is hosting the first museum exhibition dedicated exclusively to him. One large installation will fill the Magasin aux Foins with the emotions that we feel in the great outdoors when we are at one with the forest: a tribute to Mother Earth. One room will present different pieces that demonstrate his methods, his research and his evolution. Outside, a number of installations and a work-in-progress will invite visitors to make a physical connection with his work. An extensive programme of tangential activities will give visitors the opportunity to get right to the heart of the subject, in the spirit of Peter Wohllebenís Waldakademie (Forest Academy).
