It almost seemed a lily - Berlinde De Bruyckere
In 2016, the contemporary artist Berlinde De Bruyckere (b. 1964, Ghent) was first introduced to the enchanting Enclosed Gardens. She was deeply moved by the fragile beauty of these sixteenth-century reliquary altarpieces.
In this exhibition in Museum Hof van Busleyden, De Bruyckere juxtaposes and confronts her series with the sixteenth-century Enclosed Gardens, that are masterpieces of the museum’s permanent collection. These Enclosed Gardens are like a refuge, a miniature paradise that is protected from external influences.
