Berlinde De Bruyckere in conversation at her exhibition 'We are all Flesh' at The Australian Centre for Contemporary Art. Berlinde explains her use of the AC...
Berlinde De Bruyckere uses wax, wood, wool, horse skin and hair to make haunting sculptures of humans, animals and trees in metamorphosis.We are all Flesh will include the rarely seen and iconic work 019 and two new commissions created specially for this exhibition.Based in her home town of Ghent, Berlinde De Bruyckere's studio is an old neo-Gothic Catholic school house. From here she creates her incredible sculptures - torsos morph into branches, trees are captured and displayed inside old museum cabinets and cast horses are crucified upside down in works that have been described as brutal, challenging, inspiring and both frightening and comforting.Heavily influenced by the old masters, De Bruyckere's early years at boarding school were spent hiding in the library, pouring over books on the history of catholic art. She went on to study at the Saint-Lucas Visual Arts School in Ghent, and was known in the early stages of her career for using old woolen blankets in her works, sometimes simply stacked on tables of beds, a response to news footage she had seen of blanket-swathed refugees in Rwanda.
