“Mondo Cane” is the exhibition’s title proposed by Brussels artists Jos de Gruyter and Harald Thys at the Belgium Pavilion at the Venice Art Biennale.

On one side is a reassuring world, with its old trades and craftsmen.

On the other, a disturbing world, with its zombies and outsiders, fortunately, confined behind bars!

In the white space of the Belgian Pavilion, the central, quiet world that goes about its daily business lives its little life well ordered, well protected and away from the frightening reality surrounding it.

In the rooms that border the traditional and reassuring world are locked up mentally ill, psychotic murderers, infirm, spies, collaborators, frustrated, criminals, possessed of the devil.

All these characters of good and evil are represented by automatons whose jerky movements, for the most part, add to the general malaise.

Tintin for adults.
