Berlinde De Bruyckere: Aletheia

This is a major monographic exhibition dedicated to artist Berlinde De Bruyckere (Ghent, 1964).

In her practice, mainly translated through sculpture, Berlinde De Bruyckere investigates themes such as the suffering body, pain and memory, and the need to overcome and transform, creating works with a strong emotional impact, whose materiality invites the viewer to reflect on the human condition. For the exhibition the artist has conceived a body of work to create an organic narrative – an intense dramaturgy developing from distinct monumental sculptures to culminate in a large, environmental installation.

In the words of the artist, “At this moment in time, where extremism and racism proliferate, where compassion and solidarity have withered, where we see so many resemblances to the restlessness of the late ’30s that preceded the unspeakable monstrosities of the Holocaust, where this particular defamation of civilization is being questioned and denied by people with too much political power, I feel the need to bring bold, strong images – to bring this room to the audience as a sensatory, immersive experience.”
