Wim Delvoye (b. 1965) is known for his inventive and often controversial projects, and his work has been exhibited around the world. One of a generation of Belgian artists who have revolutionized contemporary art, Delvoye explores the body and its functions, producing art that combines the attractive and the repulsive, and addresses themes including religion and politics. One of his most famous works is Cloaca, a digestion machine; another significant project involves tattooed live pigs.
Coinciding with Delvoye's exhibition as guest of honor at the Louvre, Wim Delvoye Introspective is the culmination of close collaboration between the artist and distinguished scholars and critics. This publication presents a complete overview of works by the artist, demonstrating the range of media, technique, and thought-provoking subjects that defines his art.
