From 21 June onwards, ARTER will be hosting a solo exhibition by the Flemish artist Berlinde De Bruyckere. Entitled The Wound, the exhibition is curated by art historian and theorist Selen Ansen.
Berlinde De Bruyckere frequently uses material such as wax, wood, fabric, horse skin, and hair to produce sculptures and drawings that refer to the body’s fragility, to suffering and desire. The Wound presents, alongside De Bruyckere’s sculptures and drawings, a number of new pieces which the artist has produced especially for the exhibition in Istanbul.
De Bruyckere’s new works displayed at ARTER lend their title to the exhibition and are inspired by an old medical photography album the artist discovered at a library in Istanbul.
