IN THE TRENCHES OF THE BRAIN???

In The Trenches Of The Brain As An Artist-Lilliputian

Yes, this is about art, but as usual the significance of this ‘art’ escapes me. It is certainly big and I suppose it is impressive as a result. However, I always find myself asking ‘what could possibly be going through this guy’s mind?’

The picture above shows a work by Belgian artist Jan Fabre titled ‘In The Trenches Of The Brain As An Artist-Lilliputian at the Kunsthaus Exhibition Centre in Bregenz, Austria. It is part of an exhibition by Jan Fabre titled ‘From The Cellar To The Attic, From The Feet To The Brain.’

The exhibition runs until January 25, 2009. I’m sure it is a must see on the ‘Arty’ circuit.

  1. Particular Kev’s comment that “the significance of the artwork “The Trenches Of The Brain As An Artist-Lilliputian” escapes me”, leads me to have an attempt at deciphering the works.
    Surely the Artist Lilliputian is a metaphor for the “small” minded Governments that cause wars and thus deceased soldiers end up in the trenches”.
    This small mindedness was the subject of Jonathan Swift’s novel “Gulliver’s Travels which led Gulliver to Lilliput and the “small’ people.
