| Dialogue with the Old Masters
The diverse work of Belgian artist Fabrice Samyn often references masterpieces of art history. His compositions, installations, and performances explore grand metaphysical questions, combining conceptual rigor with spiritual sensuality. Against the backdrop of his art-historical references, Samyn was invited by the Royal Museums of Fine Arts in Brussels to enter into a subtle dialogue with the masterpieces of the Old Masters as well as the Musée Magritte. With his fascination for the spoken word and everyday poetry, Samyn is in a tradition with fellow Belgian artist René Magritte, and he is equally successful in translating details from the paintings of the Old Masters into a contemporary visual language. 

FABRICE SAMYN (*1981) is a painter, sculptor, graphic artist, photographer and performer. With this exhibition he has his largest presentation to date with over 70 works. He lives and works in Brussels.
