Jan Fabre

°1958, Antwerp, Belgium 

Artistic jack-of-all-trades Jan Fabre is active in various disciplines such as visual art, theatre, dance, video and film. He became famous particularly for his blue ballpoint pen drawings and his beetle sculptures. Recurrent themes in his work are ‘the hour of blue’ (the moment nocturnal animals go to sleep and diurnal animals wake up) and metamorphoses of animals. With his gigantic bronze sea turtle created for Beaufort01, it seems as if Fabre wants to cross the sea.
