Opening Today: Berlinde De Bruyckere

Published May 21, 2016

Escape into the mind of Belgian artist Berlinde de Bruyckere at the National Gallery of Iceland’s latest exhibition. Berlinde’s paintings and sculptures are powerful representations of the human and equine form, and have been shaped by influences ranging from the Flemish and German Renaissance period to the artist’s own imagination. Prepare to be moved by the physicality of her work, which combines wax, animal skins, hair and other media to create contorted forms. This is Berlinde’s first exhibition in Iceland, in a career that spans three decades and included an appearance at the 2003 Venice Biennale.
