We Are All Flesh by Berlinde De Bruyckere, 2009

Berlinde de Bruyckere is one of those artists it took me forever to warm up to.

I first quite literally bumped into her sculptures back when I worked at the lofty Hauser & Wirth in Zurich and the waxy smell and creepy texture of her works always left me feeling terribly uncomfortable. But her sculptures kept haunting me and over time, I began to see her artistic genius and today, I'm an ardent lover of her oeuvre.

I introduced her work to Alex in Lucerne on one perfect autumn day in 2007 and followed her career ever since - devouring all the information I could gather.

Now, the London division of my previous employer is presenting Berlinde's olfactory work in conjunction with oil paintings by the Baroque Neapolitan artist Luca Giordano (works courtesy of P. & D. Colnaghi & Co. Ltd.) in a show entitled We Are All Flesh.

Looks yummy!

Hours: Mon - Sat: 10 AM - 6 PM | Closed over Easter (April 10 - 13)
