Xavier Mary


Xavier Mary is a Belgian artist born in 1982 in Liège. He lives and works in Brussels.

His work has been exhibited at Palais des Beaux Arts, Bruxelles; WIELS Bruxelles; Galerie Christian Nagel, Berlin; Galerie Albert Baronian, Bruxelles; Neuer Aachener Kunstverein, Aachen; FUTURA Contemporary Art Center, Praha; Konschthal Esch, Luxembourg. His work is included in various private collections and museum collections, e.g. La collection de la Province du Hainaut, Musée d’Ixelles and Musée en Plein Air du Sart-Tilman, collection Uhoda.

In 2019 Xavier Mary has had his first solo museum exhibition where he took over the two large rooms of the BPS22, the Museum of Art of the Hainaut province, Belgium.

Represented by Baronian Xippas Gallery.


The work of Liège-born, Brussels-based contemporary artist Xavier Mary (1982) oscillates between post-industrial sculpture and post- apocalyptic realism, his iron and brutalist installations existing as powerful poetry for the motorized age. Underpinned by a fascination with cars and driving, his practice celebrates Fordism in all its glory and tragical end, repurposing disused and disregarded industrial materials and equipment to create a damning discourse of the modern and motorized civilization.
