Allegory of Caritas (An Act of Love) is a solo exhibition consisting of more than thirty new red coral sculptures and a series of unpublished blood drawings by the artist Jan Fabre.
On display are sculptures of Vanitas skulls, anatomical hearts, crosses and liturgical objects, but also the Yin and Yang and the Celtic Knot of Love, as well as symbols connected to solidarity and humanitarian aid, as well as objects that are reminiscent of folk beliefs or the artist’s personal life.
The sculptures, made of red Mediterranean coral, that seem to have emerged directly from the abysses of the artistic mind, are a poetic encounter between natural matter and artistic vision. Moreover, the drawings created by the artist with his own blood, the vital fluid has been used with clever technical mastery to depict the gestation of his son Django.
