Berlinde De Bruyckere (b. 1964) is a Belgian artist who specializes in sculpture using various media, including wax, wood, wool, and horse skin and hair. Published to coincide with De Bruyckere's participation in the 2013 Venice Biennale, this richly illustrated catalogue traces her work from conception to installation, providing a multifaceted introduction to the artist's complex and compelling work. Struck by the passion and fierce beauty in the writings of J. M. Coetzee, De Bruyckere asked the acclaimed writer to curate the Belgian Pavilion's exhibition. A previously unpublished text by Coetzee is included in this volume, as well as correspondence that the two exchanged throughout their collaborative process. The book is also enriched by writings by Herman Parret, who explores Saint Sebastian-the dual incarnation of sensuality and mystical suffering, and Venice's quintessential symbol-and his particular significance to De Bruyckere's oeuvre.
