Berlinde De Bruyckere: Embalmed

An Aarhus 2017 Commission 
Part of Coast to Coast supported by The Obel Family Foundation and 15. Juni Foundation

Presented by Aarhus 2017 in cooperation with Kunsthal Aarhus

Acclaimed Belgium artist, Berlinde De Bruyckere will create a new commission for Kunsthal Aarhus. Working with nature and imagination, combining human, vegetal and animal forms, de Bruyckere makes works that update our idea of Metamorphosis. De Bruyckere makes a sculptural environment calling upon the aesthetics of the baroque and surreal to conjure up objects and installations that will capture the viewer in an encounter with the inexplicable. De Bruyckere manifests her astonishing and sublime works from a process of casting and sculpting in hardened wax and animal skins. The effect is uncanny, flesh like and petrified. In three separate gestures and three spaces, De Bruyckere takes the viewer on a journey of transformation and haunting mutuality.

Part of Coast to Coast.

Supported by the foundation Beckett-Fonden.
