The title of the next Biennale de Lyon, A Terrible Beauty Is Born, is a verse from the poem Easter, 1916 written by W.B. Yeats on September of that year on the uprising by which hundreds of Irish rebels claimed emancipation from the British. At first sight, the poem could be read as celebrating the martyrs that gave their life for the cause of independence.
