Jan Fabre – From the Cellar to the Attic
From the Feet to the Brain
This catalogue, which has been designed in close collaboration with Jan Fabre, presents the five pieces shown at the Kunsthaus Bregenz, which come together as sculptural tableaus rich in symbolism and references. The piece follows the form of the human body, beginning with the feet, then the genitals, the stomach, the heart and finally the brain, each tableau filling a whole floor of the building.
In his introduction, Eckhard Schneider broaches the subject of sculptural tableaus and Fabre's execution and interpretation of them in this cryptic gesamtkunstwerk. This impressive installation is presented through numerous foldout panels and large-format photographs.
