Contemporary Belgian artist Wim Delvoye is known for his humor, his taste for technological experimentation, and for his rich and varied production as demonstrated in recent years through exhibitions in countries as diverse as Canada, Azerbaijan, Russia, Luxembourg, and Iran.
Indeed, the works of Delvoye are often a meeting between craft and the most sophisticated industrial manufacturing techniques, a study of the past and a contemplation of the future.
The exhibition of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, conceived in close collaboration with the artist, along with this accompanying catalogue offers a broad panorama of his work and emphasizes its multidisciplinary aspect.
This catalogue brings together the exhibition’s unprecedented conversations between Delvoye’s creations and masterpieces from the MRBAB Fine Arts Museum's ancient art collection.
In addition, recent works, presented to the public for the first time, testify to the artist’s attentiveness to the changes underway in our hyper-connected societies, where real and virtual tend increasingly to overlap.
