GLASS AND BONES
A dream journey to Jan Fabre's exhibition Glass and bone sculptures 1977-2017 at the 57th Venice Biennale of Art. An "angel spectator" enters a deserted abbey in the heart of Venice, where she discovers sculptures and installations made entirely of two materials: glass and bones. Through his gaze, the audience walks between death and metamorphosis, discovering the thought of one of the most influential artists of the last decades, for whom art, science and religion are intimately tied.
