Shameless Jan Fabre copy?
Speaking about Jan Fabre, he’s certainly worth a blog post!
I saw these in person at the Museum of Art and Design in NYC last month. Very interesting to have the smell along with the visual for sure a piece.
It’s not extremely telling or shocking, but I appreciate the creativity that went into this and enjoyed seeing it.
Eerie and wonderful. They look ancient. I bet they smell great, too.
I prefer them, somehow, to Fabre’s skulls. Though they are a little too similar…
I saw this one too in the MAD. Jan Fabre s work was also exhibited in the same room. I didn’t mind the similarity. It has a different meaning.
