hartelijk gefeliciteerd JAN FABRE!

And all the best to one of my favourite artists, who turns 53 today!
Since I discovered him about two years ago, his work fascinates me. The colour blue, BIC ballpen drawings, beetles and cigarette smoke are only a few things I associate with his artistic cosmos. But he doesn't only work in the studio but also with his theatre group called Troubleyn.
I highly recommend you to check out his website and the homepage of his theatre company Troubleyn.

Here is a video from this year's Biennale of which Fabre was part of. During a press conference he talked about his homeland Belgium, populism, forbidden things in art and about his work.
