Berlinde De Bruyckere


Belgian artist Berlinde De Bruyckere has been working with wool blankets that cover and protect — as the material for her sculptures and installations. Recently she has created a series of horses by covering casts of horse bodies with fabrics. Each figure is malformed and fragmentary, often lacking the fundamental elements of a muzzle, ears or hooves. Bruyckere has been featured with Saatchi Gallery, but this month will mark her first solo exhibition in the UK. Hauser & Wirth in London will exhibit new sculptures, and recently Bruyckere exhibited with Pont Center for Contemporary Art in the Netherlands.
