Xavier Somers was born in 1970 in a town of Bruges, in Belgium. As a passionate traveler,

Xavier wandered around across the world, before resettling in his native Belgium. The art

he makes is inspired by the town he lives in, by its charming medieval atmosphere and

architecture. Somers’ unique sculptural work emerges from the feelings and perception

he experiences during his city walks and urban exploration.

The style of Xavier Somers’ exquisite art is filled with elements of mechanics and gear

wheeks,resembling the aesthetics of steampunk genre, inspired by 19th century

steam-powered machinery. Somers successfully merges mechanical parts with classical

Greek sculptures of gods and goddesses, creating a unique combination of mythology

and modern age. Made out of clockwork parts and real bird bones and skeletons, the

sculptures embody creatures and palaces constructed in Xavier’s highly creative,

imaginative and vivid world.

At the same time beautiful and terrifying, Xavier Somers’ assembled sculptures express

feelings of emptiness and wandering, questioning the briefness of life and certainty of death.

Xavier Somers lives and creates in Bruges, Belgium
