As guest artist at the Louvre, Belgian conceptual artist Wim Delvoye (b. 1965) has created new, site-specific art for the museum. This bi-lingual (English and French) publication documents this and other previously unpublished works by the controversial artist. Demonstrating a range of techniques, these works respond to the Louvre's collections with subversive and ironic reinterpretations of older styles, including Baroque crucifixes and Gothic motifs.

Marie-Laure Bernadac is curator and special advisor on contemporary art at the Louvre. Jean-Pierre Criqui is editor-in-chief of Les Cahiers du musée national d'art moderne (Paris).
