Wezen by Berlinde De Bruyckere, 2003/04, WON'T BE ON SHOW - click to enlarge

If I've learnt one thing in life it's that Berlinde De Bruyckere (previously featured here) monographs make for very shitty camouflage in the urban wilderness.

Her works, on the other hand, are per se camouflaged to such perfection that the uninitiated audience might get a strong sense of the uncanny when approaching her olfactory wax work installations. And it's that feeling of general unease that makes her exhibitions so memorable.

I am therefore thrilled to hear that my ex-employer Hauser & Wirth will show her new works in a solo show entitled Into One-Another To P.P.P (dedicated to Pier Paolo Pasolini) opening this coming Tuesday in NYC. Don't miss this.
