Berlinde de Bruyckere

                                 photo by Carinne
My friend Carine, who now lives in Nairobi, shared the above photograph of this major sculpture of one of Belgium's most interesting artists, Berlinde de Bruyckere. The lifesize representation of a horse is now on display in the residence of the Belgian Ambassador there.
Berlinde's work is shown together with a local artists expositon  Funika-Fufuka (Cover-Recover) curated by Gonda Geets, a Belgian artist who lives in Nairobi. Funika-Fufuka’s theme is what the catalogue calls the history of humanity, with all the nuances of pain and healing, vulnerability and violence that entails.

  5. Franchement, appeler cela de l'art, me semble un peu exagéré.

  10. I am confused as to how it will be mounted on a stand...Which I think would make a big difference? Interesting.
