Lukas De Clerck
Lukas De Clerck is a musician and artist living in Brussels.
His artistic practice is currently centered around the Aulos, an ancient Greco-Roman, double-reeded double pipe, that got extinct more than a millennium ago.
After several years of delving deep in the practice of Aulos reed making and playing replicas of ancient instruments, he opens up his inevitably auto-didact artistic output in a more collaborative, multi-disciplinary way. Following the desire to strip the instrument from its enigmatic past, De Clerck created a new, contemporary Aulos: The Telescopic Aulos of Atlas.
De Clerck’s approach is driven by playful curiosity with a strong interest in the process of transformation.
Instead of conserving what is found, he invents what is not. A process that aims to be as radical, as it is careful.
