The show


The exhibition will be open on the days: 23/24/30/31 May and 2/6/7 June from 12 to 19.

Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation presents "Aletheia", a large monographic exhibition dedicated to Berlinde De Bruyckere (Ghent, 1964), curated by Irene Calderoni.

His sculptural work investigates universal themes such as the suffering body, pain, memory, the need for overcoming and transformation. Strongly influenced by the history of art and mythology, as well as by the daily reality of collapsing social structures, De Bruyckere creates works with a strong emotional impact, which through their materiality invite us to reflect on the human condition.

For this occasion the artist has conceived a specific corpus of works, unfolded throughout the Foundation's exhibition space as an organic narrative, an intense dramaturgy that will develop through distinct monumental sculptures to culminate in a large environmental installation.

Conceived in response to the architecture of the Foundation and its large minimalist spaces, the exhibition draws inspiration from a place that the artist visited in the recent past, and which has since influenced all his artistic practice: a laboratory for the processing of leathers in Anderlecht, Belgium. Here the animal skins, just torn, are stacked on large pallets and covered with salt, to preserve them for subsequent treatments. The extreme violence that has been perpetrated is evident, recent, but it seems to be attenuated in ritual gestures of participatory care.
