Berlinde De Bruyckere.:Suffering and ProtectionFlemish sculptor creates sculptures and drawings of suffering human bodies that resemble nothing so much as reality. It mixes in his sculptures on religious grounds and media images and writes the Christian motif of the human suffering in the contemporary era. The confrontation with the body that engages the artist led to questions about the ethics of our society and are the place to fundamental questions about the nature of the human being.
These disturbing and uncannily lifelike sculptures by Belgian artist Berlinde De Bruyckere are incredibly visceral and eerie. The repulsion instinctively triggered in the viewer comes from their verisimilitude, and the sense of reality of this nameless, grotesque, distorted, half-human, seemingly fluid flesh; combined with their beauty, the delicate, subtle mottling of colors, the pure realistic visceral fleshiness of the works, and their technical grace.
this repulses me and yet intrigues me
so fucking down
this is too much

“Last night… I… my son is in the hospital, dying. I’ve been crying all day. He’s not here, and I can’t even go see him. I can’t help him. I can’t do anything. What am I gonna do? I need to be there. I don’t even know if he’s gonna die. How am I gonna know? I don’t even have a phone. I’ve got two dollars to buy a calling card. The thing is, I need to be next to him. He’s dying. My other sons went there, but I can’t go because I don’t have any money. I wish I could go and do something.”
“Last night, he got attacked by a gang in my country. El Salvador is very dangerous. They hurt good people. Gang members split his head open, and now he’s in a coma. He’s a big kid, so there must’ve been a lot of them—one guy can’t bring him down. And even then the only way they could get him is if they hit him in the back. They stole his wallet, his glasses.
“I just found out this morning, when I checked my email in the library. Somebody stole my phone at the shelter last night at 10 o’clock. My brother said he called me at 11 o’clock to let me know what happened. I don’t know, man, it’s very sad what’s happening in my life. If he dies, I’m gonna kill myself.”
“Don’t say that. You have other children. They’ll need you.”
“They’ve got their momma—my ex wife. I’m single, and I stay at a shelter. I’m not worth much.”
