About this title


This two-volume edition presents an overview of mosaics through which Jan Fabre has created a great epic on terror in beauty as a reflection on our own dark being. Jan Fabre has created a monumental new cycle of his mosaics for the PinchukArtCentre in Kiev. This publication presents the two grand series―Tribute to Belgian Congo and Tribute to Hieronymus Bosch in Congo, where the artist again grapples artistically with his country’s colonial past. All works from both series impress with their large size, but above all with the use of millions upon millions of jewel beetle wing cases. Utilizing the various color tones of this iridescent material, Jan Fabre takes us into an indeterminate zone, between paradise and the Belgian Congo.Both volumes are presented by Eckhard Schneider, general director of the PinchukArtCentre and are introduced by a specialist on the subject, with a collection of texts by more than thirty international art professionals.

About the Author:

For more than thirty-five years, Jan Fabre (born Antwerp, 1958) has occupied a leading international position as a groundbreaking visual artist, theater maker and author.
