Jan Fabre is a versatile and innovative visual artist, playwright and author who has played a prominent part in the international art scene for over 35 years. In an article published in 2011, he declared that if he had to steal one work from a museum, it would be the Pornocratès of Félicien Rops.
Today, Rops posthumously invites Fabre to tour his city, Namur. A new route taking in museums and outdoor spaces, exploring the bold and challenging worlds of these two Belgian artists.
At the Félicien Rops Museum and the Maison de la Culture: exhibitions of works that create a visceral link between both artists, between vital impulse and death wish.
On the Citadel and in the city: outdoor sculptures. At the Church of Saint-Loup: a philosophical response from Bernard Henri Lévy, who has been invited by Fabre to address the Baudelairean spirit of the two artists across time.
At the Royal Theatre: two Fabre shows, Preparatio Mortis and Le Pouvoir des folies théâtrales. Numerous ancillary activities in connection with the exhibitions: lectures, film screenings, workshops, etc.
