Jan Fabre
TRIBUTE TO HIERONYMUS BOSCH IN CONGO

ESPACE CULTUREL LOUIS VUITTON, TOKYO, JAPANFrom 07/08/2015 to 09/23/2015 

The Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton in Tokyo is showing for the first time in Tokyo a set of mosaics from the serie: Hommage à Jérôme Bosch au Congo, fruits of an artistic process that ran from 2011 to 2013. Using his materials of predilection, beetle wing sheathes – or elytra – Fabre decided to turn his focus to his country’s colonial past. He also summons his predecessor Hieronymus Bosch — Fabre is fascinated by his superlative creativity and the power of his images. He draws inspiration from scenes depicted in the Garden of Earthly Delights, reinterpreting them as allegories of injustice, cruelty and indifference.
