Glass and Bones

A dream journey to Jan Fabre’s exhibition Glass and Bone Sculptures from 1977­- 2017 at the 57th Venice Bien­nale of Art. An “angel spectator” enters a deserted abbey in the heart of Venice, where she discovers sculptures and installations made entirely of two materials: glass and bone. Via her gaze, the audi­ence walks between death and metamorphosis, di­scovering the thoughts of one of the most influential artists of the last decades, for whom art, science and religion are intimately tied.
