Jan Fabre - Chapters

For today’s presentation used pictures from visits to the Kröller-Müller Museum. The Kröller-Müller Museum is a national art museum and sculpture garden, located in the Hoge Veluwe National Park in Otterlo in the Netherlands. The museum is famous for the second-largest collection of paintings by Vincent van Gogh, but also for its outstanding sculpture garden. Maybe we can better speak of a sculpture park or even sculpture forest.

The sculptures are form the Belgian multidisciplinary artist, playwright, stage director, choreographer and designer, Jan Fabre (born 1958)

“Summer 2011 there was a large exhibition in the Kröller Müller with work by Jan Fabre. The museum has purchased a number of works from the exhibition, including various 'Chapters'. In the sculpture park stood 18 heads of Fabre, depicted in the age 20-70 years and each head with an outgrowth that does not suit man. It concerns horns, antlers, ears and teeth.
The museum acquired after the exhibition 8 chapters.

◙ The main picture shows the eight chapters in a row with two admires of the artwork. In front is the head with a narwhal tooth, chapter II. The picture also gives an impression of the splendour of the sculpture park.
◙ The first workshop is a triptych with the chapters XVIII – III – I
◙ The second workshop is a triptych with the chapters XVII - XV - IX

■ Main picture: ◙ Chapter II
■ Workshop 1: ◙ Chapters XVIII – III – I
■ Workshop 2: ◙ ChaptersXVII - XV - IX

Fabre in 2011 about the row of self-portraits: "I believe that we are all schizophrenic. Perhaps there is a gangster, a genius, a clown or a charlatan in me. "The horns are like antennae to pick up signals, or to defend themselves, he says. According to the sculptor, it is no vanity in another interview that he stands there eighteen times” (website museum)

I add the dark frame to the picture to give the posts a screen format of 1920x1080 pixels
The idea is that, if you use the links in the text, you have a full screen image of the picture with the photo in the centre of a dark screen.
This works with the browsers and screens I use, but I’m not sure that everybody will have the same result.
