Berlinde De Bruyckere: City of Refuge III

The third in a series of exhibitions by the artist thematizing art as a place of sanctuary and shelter, reinforced here by the venue’s spiritual intensity.

Isola di San Giorgio Maggiore 2, 30124

This exhibition offers an exploration of juxtapositions and dialogues within sacred spaces. The Basilica hosts an evocative installation of veiled archangels, blurring the boundaries between the earthly and celestial. In the Sacristy, De Bruyckere‘s post-apocalyptic tableau invites contemplation on nature’s renewal, resonating with the adjacent religious imagery. Transitioning to the Monastery’s Gallery, echoes of Flemish craftsmanship intersect with contemporary reinterpretations, while De Bruyckere’s own oeuvre adds depth and context to the narrative woven throughout the exhibition.
