Jan Fabre (BE)

STIGMATA – Actions & Performances 1976–2016

“There is a Jan Fabre who is a clown. There is a Jan Fabre who is stupid and a Jan Fabre who is a scientist, an entomologist, a philosopher, a night owl,” Jan Fabre declares. The universal artist’s body contains a multitude of personifications. They all take their positions in this pandemonium tamed by Germano Celant into an exhibition of visions, ideas, figments, objects, hypotheses and documents that are presented under the title Stigmata at Leopold Museum in the scope of ImPulsTanz. In 1976, a young Jan Fabre visited an exhibition in Bruges of paintings by Flemish masters showing stigmata and flagellations. “A shock,” he says. “That’s when I discovered the concept of performance, even before I was aware of the term itself.” His first performance actions were burning money and drawing with his own blood. At the centre of his oeuvre, situated between visual art and theatrical works, Fabre identifies the “performance section” as “self-perforation” and a search within oneself: “What is the meaning of the skin, the blood, the urine? And why do we sweat?”
