Jan Fabre "The most sexy part of the body"


poster for Jan Fabre "The most sexy part of the body"

This event has ended.

Jan Fabre was born in Antwerp in 1958 and studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Art and the Municipal Institute of Decorative Arts and Crafts in Antwerp. He is recognized internationally as a avant-garde artist with many skills, crossing the border between theatre and art.

One of his best-known works is 'Hour of blue', a series of ballpoint drawings inspired by 'Souvenirs Entomologiques' that was written by his great-grandfather. His sculptures of insects are also well known. Recent activities include exhibits in such major international exhibitions as the Venice Biennale in 2001 and Documenta in Kassel in 1992. In Japan, he has participated in the "Another World" exhibition at Art Tower Mito, the "Ripples of Water" exhibition at the Watarium. This is his first solo exhibition in Japan since one held at Marugame Genichiro-Inokuma Museum of Contemporary Art in 2001.

A series of drawings done in his own blood, sculptures in shapes of the brain, and new sculptures that have never been exhibited before will be on display.

My friend (male) once told me that the sexiest part of a person is mind - because without our mind, we cannot think erotically or sexually. So the theme of Jan Fabre's exhibition stroke the memory of my friend's idea which I was totally convinced.

All you see there is brain - drawings of brain and sculptures of brain. Some of the brains have a head and legs or an arm coming out of "the brain body".

The brain drawings with arms somehow threw me an impression of Jan Fabre's mood for touching himself.

Then I saw a drawing of two brains laying on top of each other with a line, "My Parents Fucking."

Lovely.., my brain shall be his object to draw.
