Wim Delvoye, ‘Untitled (Maserati)’, 2012, DHC/ART

About Wim Delvoye

Contemporary “Neo-Conceptual” artist Wim Delvoye’s practice is defined by an ability to both to shock and intrigue. Delvoye has made x-rays of sexual acts (“Sex Rays”), tattooed live pigs, designed intricate laser-cut steel towers, and carved delicately patterned rubber tires. Despite the technical mastery he demonstrates in many of his sculpted works, Deloyve has famously proclaimed that “all art is useless.” For Cloaca (2000), Delovye created a digestive machine: a complex contraption, installed in a museum gallery space, whose sole purpose was to turn food into feces.
