The exhibition is devoted to Jan Fabre‘s sculptures, mostly in marble, and drawings that deal with the mind, the body, our dreams and especially our imagination in conversation with scientific discoveries, the mind and the brain which become a source, a land, a character whose adventures we experience in this exhibition through the works created especially for this event.
Jan Fabre has designed a “customized” exhibition for the Maeght Foundation. He wished to have an exhibition that was spiritual in every sense of the word, at once dreamlike and serious but with the irony of games and a humor in the style of James Ensor. He brings his artistic discoveries into dialogue with those of science and art history.
