And what about the other Belgian artists at the Venice Biennale?

Berlinde De Bruyckere, selected by the Flemish minister of Culture, is representing Belgium at the Venice Biennale. But apart from that a couple of Belgian artists have been fortunate enough to have been chosen by curator Massimiliano Gioni for the official exhibition at the Biennale: The Encyclopedic Palace. At the Arsenale you’ll find a selection of really fine works  by Patrick Van Caeckenbergh, a video by Jos De Gruyter & Harald Thys and a series of photographs by Norbert Ghisoland (who died in 1939). Rather special is that his pictures have been selected by Cindy Sherman, for a room she curated. She presents them together with a selection from her collection of picture books. Quite an honor. At the Giardini you’ll find a remarkable room too, in which large works by Thierry De Cordier are shown next to two sculptures by Richard Serra. Not bad at all, Belgium.
