Berlinde De Bruyckere

Berlinde De Bruyckere @ Hauser & Wirth, NYC

Berlinde De Bruyckere (1964, Ghent, Belgium) is an artist based in Ghent.

She specialises in sculpture in various media including wax, wood, wool, horse skin and hair, though she also works in watercolour and gouache. Her work typically deals with issues of loneliness, pain and death, and since the early 1990s many of her major works have featured structures involving blankets. Their use is symbolic both of warmth and shelter, and of the vulnerable circumstances such as wars that make people seek such shelter.

In 2000, her work with five dead horses, In Flanders Fields, a commentary on World War I, was exhibited at the In Flanders Fields Museum, Ypres. She gained international acclaim at the 2003 Venice Biennale, when her sculptures were shown in the Italian Pavilion. Since then, her solo exhibitions have included ones at Hauser & Wirth, Zurich (2004); La Maison Rouge, Fondation Antoine de Galbert, Paris (2005); and De Pont Foundation for Contemporary Art, Tilburg (2005). In 2006 her work was included in the 4th Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art and exhibited in a two-artist show at the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf.

these are amazing.

just looked it up :

New York, NY… Beginning March 1, 2011, Hauser & Wirth New York will present ‘Into One-Another To P.P.P.,’ an exhibition of new sculptures and works on paper by internationally admired artist Berlinde De Bruyckere, dedicated by the artist to legendary Italian filmmaker, poet, painter, and journalist Pier Paolo Pasolini. The show serves as a foretaste of De Bruyckere’s traveling solo museum exhibition, which will debut in April at the Moritzburg Foundation in Halle, Germany, and present her work in juxtaposition with that of Pasolini and Renaissance master Lucas Cranach.

‘Into One-Another To P.P.P’ will remain on view at Hauser & Wirth New York through April 23rd.
