Felix Bahret (b. 1989 in Bühl, Germany) lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. Bahret is a stone mason and sculptor. He concluded his apprenticeship at the Cathedral Workshop in Freiburg, Germany, before studying at the Slade School of Art (University College London).
Bahret employs traditional carving techniques to produce stone sculptures which oscillate between the animistic language of contemporary design and a sense of geomorphic historicity. His sculpture aspires to hold a body-real presence whilst conveying traces of, and meditating upon, their archaic mode of production.

Can art be a vehicle for alchemy and magic? The seven artists behind Ascending Delight pose this question, bringing together diverse ideas about exchanges in contemporary culture as our world becomes ever more digitised and connected at the price of a diminished sense of place and security.
The works aim to find a way to navigate this increasingly linked, yet dissociative culture. A coinciding project at The Laurieston Bar sees a photo-based publication on display alongside the pub’s customer photo albums.
