about the book

Accompanying the first UK exhibition of the work of Berlinde De Bruyckere, this publication presents the artist's frail-looking wax figures suspended from tall iron columns. They invoke the 'Schmerzensmann', the eternal 'Man of Suffering;' their forms appear vulnerable and violated, their skin stretched and broken.

The Artist

Berlinde De Bruyckere

Working with casts made of wax, animal skins, hair, textiles, metal and wood, Berlinde De Bruyckere renders haunting distortions of organic forms. The vulnerability and fragility of man, the suffering body – both human and animal – and the overwhelming power of nature are some of the core motifs of De Bruyckere’s oeuvre.
