Wim Delvoye

Wim Delvoye was born in Belgium in 1965 and lives and works in Ghent. He has gained international recognition through his participation in major exhibitions including the Venice Biennale in 1990, Documenta IX in 1992 and again, the Venice Biennale in 1999.
Cloaca, his famous faeces—producing machine, his embellished everyday objects and tattooed pigs, his monumental cathedrals in metal, along with crooked Christs, obscene stained-glass windows, and steel towers...
The intrusion of the religious into his world comes across as the return of the repressed, metamorphosed by a craftsman's skill. His audacity disrupts the space-time continuum, questioning genres, cultures, and practices, blending the intellectual and the popular, and confronting the artistic heritage with the latest technology.
