Tim Roosen - King of the Castle - Belgium

Metal symposium 2016

From the moment Joshua Pennings took part in the 2013 Metal Symposium, he regularly sent us reports on his activities, including various exhibitions and the publication of a book. He held one of these exhibitions together with other artists – and Tim Roosen was the one who caught our eye among them. We attached a list of previous participants to our offer, so that he could talk to his Belgian colleagues and make sure that the Metal Symposium was truly an event worth attending. We were very pleased when he accepted our invitation.

Tim Roosen works in two thematic directions – Asylum, i.e. busts or masks of dark female warriors and variously distorted creatures; and Roboville, as the name implies, a series of robots in the city. At the Metal Symposium, he decided to create the largest work to date in the Roboville series, also because the word "robot" itself comes from the Czech language. He asked if he could "cheat" a little and prepare some parts at home. We had no problem with this, because Bart Somers had done the same thing the previous year.

Tim Roosen worked in the Technical School’s workshop and his statue was called the “King of the Castle”. The elements used here depict the three most common architectural styles in our country and, at the same time, the three robots, which are part of the work, are depicted in three different colours. It is no coincidence that these three colours make up the colours of the Czech national flag.
