Catalogue Note

Over the last 25 years, Jan Fabre has become renowned for his work as performance artist, theatre maker, choreographer, dramatist and visual artist. As a 'prodigy' of the new Flemish art movement of the nineteen eighties he is primarily a draughtsman and visual artist but also directs stages with a dazzling freedom, giving the human body pride of place in his oeuvre. His most well-known works include Tivoli (1990), the castle covered all over in ballpoint drawing, The man who measures the clouds (1998) a bronze sculpture, versions of which can be seen at smak in Ghent, deSingel in Antwerp and in the sculpture garden at Catanzaro in Italy; and not least Heaven of Delight (2002), a permanent work commissioned by Queen Paola of Belgium for the Mirror Hall at the Royal Palace in Brussels. Fabre's theatre company Troubleyn, founded in 1986, was a great success in 2007 with the performance 'Requiem für eine Metamorphose'. In 2009 Jan Fabre was awarded the jury prize of the Critique Professionelle for his most recent work for theatre 'Orgie de la Tolérance', which received its first performance in April 2009 in Théâtre de la Ville in Paris.

Jan Fabre is a former advisor at the Rijksakademie.
