Berlinde De Bruyckere (born 1964) creates sculptures, installations and drawings that use natural materials such as wax, animal skins and hair, wool and wood to express the vulnerability of mankind and nature. The sculptures and watercolors presented here were created between 2001 and 2013.

The encounter of artists Berlinde De Bruyckere and Martin Honert in the exhibition provides the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf with a great opportunity of presenting two exceptional positions in the field of contemporary sculpture. The title itself alludes to both a special approach towards the subject matter and the actual context of the works themselves; both sculptors derive their creative impetus from the realm of things concealed, from memory and remembrance, from the substrate and sediments of dreams, as well as from images and photographs.
