La beauté est le nom de quelque chose qui n'existe pas et que je donne aux choses en échange du plaisir qu'elles me donnent. Fernando Pessoa


Ik zweer bij de schoonheid van het nutteloze, en zie het nutteloze van de schoonheid in. Paul Snoek

La laideur a ceci de supérieur à la beauté qu'elle ne disparaît pas avec le temps. Serge Gainsbourg

In the Kabbalah, 6 is considered to represent beauty. In the Tree of Life, under the name Tipheret, it is at the center of the ten Sephirot. If human beings are incapable of attaining the unknowable Truth, they can at least reach its essential radiance: Beauty. Alejandro Jodorowsky

Photographer Bart Ramakers has been capturing beauty while telling his pictural stories. After a lifetime of fascination for the fair, he embarks on his most ambitious project ever, in order to understand the true nature of beauty. Is it in the eye of the beholder or is it the objective emanation of Truth and Wisdom? Is it a blessing or a curse? Will it overcome the atrocities of time and death or is it a victim itself? Can beauty save the world? Why is beauty sometimes cruel? Major questions that ask for an answer in this mesmerising whirlwind of enigmas and magical tricks about the cruelty of fate, adoration and extasy, the wheel of fortune, beauty and time, life and death. And art of course, eventually.

The Anatomy of Beauty is an exhibition (autumn 2017), a calendar (14 pictures) and an art movie (5 mn).
