Jan Fabre – Viewing boxes, Thinking models and Drawings, 1977–2008
solo show
In a unique exhibition, Deweer Gallery focuses on the viewing boxes, thinking models and drawings of Jan Fabre, highlighting in this way a very important and consistent part of Fabre’s extensive repertoire. Deweer Gallery has been representing Jan Fabre for 32 years already and has preserved his viewing boxes, thinking models and drawings since the beginning of his career. From his first thinking model La maison de J.F. (1977), a rare, utopian design of an aluminum house without a roof, to his later brain drawings (2008) and brain models (2008).

The viewing boxes and thinking models are unjustly overlooked within the multifaceted oeuvre of Jan Fabre. They are small three-dimensional objects that provide an insight into the inexhaustible imagination of the artist and visually depict autonomous worlds that subvert the relation (of scale) to reality. They contain many of the themes in Fabre’s universe, such as his penchant for blue Bic pen-colored drawings and the Bic-treated objects that refer to the transition between day and night. They show different faces of the artist that range from scientist to adventurer, resistance fighter and criminal to dreamer and eternal seeker of beauty.
