Jan Fabre: Tribute to Hieronymous Bosch in Congo

Studio Trisorio Gallery / Naples / Art

Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights never ceases to inspire. Contemporary artist Raquib Shaw created a series based on the painting. Designer Alexander McQueen wove its themes into couture creations. And the Belgian artist Jan Fabre, in this exhibition of mosaics and sculptures, clothes the visual language of Bosch in the emerald wing casings of beetles. His subject is Belgian Congo, those years under the colonial whip (1908 to 1960), when Bosch-like violence was the grim reality in a green land. —J.V.
