Jan Fabre

Insect Drawings & Insect Sculptures 1975–1979

A passionate fascination with insects and spiders marks the beginning of Jan Fabre’s oeuvre and to this day remains the common thread throughout his work. Fabre approaches his theme not just entomologically, however; he examines natural phenomena, life and death, animal and human bodies, outward appearance and inner meaning. Forceful and inventive, his dramatizations on a stage populated by creatures juxtapose the tragic and the comic with an arresting immediacy.

This exhibition and catalogue for the first time present some of Fabre’s early works from the years 1975 to 1979, a period that was crucial to his development as an artist.
