Sympathy for the devil

May 31, 2011

“For this second group exhibition in the Vanhaerents Art Collection curators Walter Vanhaerents and Pierre-Olivier Rollin have again chosen the title of a rock song. Sympathy for the Devil is the first track on the Rolling Stones album Beggars Banquet. The exhibition contains works of Walter Vanhaerents’ vast art collection. Each of them are linked in one way or the other to prominent ideas in the song : the fascinating beauty of evil, the attraction of moral or psychological hell, death and danger as a celebration of life, extreme and transgressive behaviour and a pronounced tendency towards sexuality.”

Currently exhibited at Vanhaerents Art Collection in Brussels!
