Homo faber: drawings, performances, photoworks, films, sculptures & installations
Jan Fabre, born in Antwerp in 1958, is one of the most innovative and versatile artists of his generation. Over the past 30 years, he has produced work as a visual artist, performance artist, director and author, expanding the horizons of every genre. Homo Faberis the first comprehensive overview to deal with all aspects of Fabre's visual art. It discusses key themes and ideas in his performance, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography and film work, including the concept of metamorphosis, his use of human bones and echoes of the Old Masters in his work. This volume covers the whole of Fabre's artistic career, starting from works of the 1970s and 80s, when he exhibited himself in a shop window and staged performances in which he burned spectators' money and leading up to his most recent sculptural still lifes of owls' heads and Pushpin Men.
