How do you do “a head” ?

How do you represent a body, a silhouette ?

That was what kept Giacometti occupied throughout thirty years of creativity. Placing Man at the focus of his research, he worked untiringly on the human figure, notably on the motifs of the feminine figure, the head and the bust. Uncompromisingly demanding, he would unceasingly take up and obsessively rework these themes, most often using the same models, chiefly his wife Annette and brother Diego.

"Alberto Giacometti - L'Humanité absolue" is one of the first wide-ranging monographic exhibitions of the artist in Belgium. In a scenography that harmonises with the unique architecture of La Cité Miroir, the installation comprises 35 bronze masterpieces from the Giacometti Foundation and some outstanding lithographs originating from Giacometti’s legendary work Paris sans fin.

Spanning about thirty years, the selection of works offers a reading of the artist’s post-war output, repositioning it in a historical context characterised by the existentialist philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre. Giacometti met him in 1941 and visited him regularly after the war: an encounter between two men absolutely committed to freedom.
