From June 30 to November 11, the Maeght Foundation will welcome Belgian artist Jan Fabre. The exhibition will be devoted to his sculptures, mostly in marble, and drawings that deal with the mind, the body, our dreams and especially our imagination in conversation with scientific discoveries, the mind and the brain which become a source, a land, a character whose adventures we experience in this exhibition through the works created especially for this event.
No introduction is necessary for Jan Fabre, a major heir to surrealism and Flemish Baroque as well as drama and contemporary dance, a visual artist creating sculptures and installations, a great designer and also performer and author. Jan Fabre has designed a "customized" exhibition for the Maeght Foundation. He wished to have an exhibition that was spiritual in every sense of the word, at once dreamlike and serious but with the irony of games and a humor in the style of James Ensor. He brings his artistic discoveries into dialogue with those of science and art history. Download
In the spring, from March 24 to June 17, the Korean artist Lee Bae will take over the spaces of the Maeght Foundation to present his paintings, sculptures and installations specially created for the occasion.
Under the curation of art critic Henri-François Debailleux, this exhibition highlights a body of work built around very subtle blends coming from Western abstract art such as Arte Povera and the codes and traditional artistic practices of Korean culture. With Lee Bae, the idea of nature is present through fire and charcoal but also through the symbolic and intangible black. The artist likes to emphasize that the burned wood and coal he uses come from the human hand and its ability to transform this natural material. Download
