[VIDEO] Berlinde de Bruyckere: Kreupelhout – Cripplewood / Belgian Pavilion, Venice Art Biennale 2013
by Vernissage TV


Berlinde de Bruyckere is representing Belgium at the 55th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia 2013. De Bruyckere has conceived a site-specific installation for the Belgian Pavilion that is set in a very dark environment. Berlinde de Bruyckere is known for her scuptures that explore life and death. For her sculpture that reminds of a wounded tree or bones, she invited the writer J.M. Coetzee, winner of the 2003 nobel prize for Literature, to serve as a curator and artistic collaborator. The collaboration follows a joint project from 2012, when De Bruyckere and Coetzee published the book ‘Allen Vlees (All Flesh)’, combining her images with his writings.
