Next to the Belgian Pavilion with Berlinde De Bruyckere, more than 25 Belgian artists are invited to exhibit in various venues around Venice during the 55th Biennale.
13 March - 13 May 2013
J.M. Coetzee and Berlinde De Bruyckere have followed and admired one another's work for years. For the 55th Venice Biennale, they engage in an unusual form of collaboration. "I have been touched by her work in ways that are often obscure to me" (Coetzee).
In "Cripplewood", her site specific installation, De Bruyckere builds upon her existing oeuvre - intertwining life and death in intimate sculptures - in relation to the historical context of Venice.
