Until 22 November 2018, an exhibition of the 93-year-old artist Francois Calvat can be seen at gallery Pascal Vanhoecke (FR). Calvat only works with a few materials: steel sheet, zinc and charred wood. He has been using the charred wood for 40 years already, long before the introduction of Shou Sugi Ban in Europe by Zwarthout. Together with Zwarthout, Calvat works on a special artwork, which we will reveal soon at the World Architecture Festival (RAI Amsterdam, 28-30 November 2018).
