This exhibition brings together the work of two Begian artists from different generations: a sculptor, Berlinde De Bruyckere (b. 1964, Ghent) and a painter, Philippe Vandenberg (1952, Ghent – 2009, Brussels), whose works have rarely been exhibited in France.
For the exhibition Il me faut tout oublier, De Bruyckere has not only contributed her artworks, but also collaborated in a unique manner with the curators. She has made her own personal selection of paintings and drawings by Vandenberg, thus introducing an intense and multi-layered dialogue. Continuing on her powerful presentation at the Belgian Pavillion in the Venice Biennale of 2013, De Bruyckere has created an imposing sculpture of wax and cloth especially for this exhibition at la Maison Rouge.
Previously, works by De Bruyckere and Vandenberg have been presented together at the exhibition Innocence is precisely: never to avoid the worst in 2012 at the De Pont Museum, in Tilburg, Netherlands.
