For more than thirty-five years Belgian artist Jan Fabre has been one of the most innovative and important figures on the international contemporary art scene. As a visual artist, theatre maker and author he has created a highly personal world with its own rules and laws, as well as its own characters, symbols, and recurring motifs. Fabre has earned the recognition of a worldwide audience with public works in sites of historical importance, such as his latest installation in Antwerp Cathedral. He has presented large-scale solo exhibitions in prestigious museums such as the Louvre in Paris and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.
