Wim Delvoye - 3 examples

Wim Delvoye was born in Wervik, Belgium, in 1965 and is known for his oft-shocking and innovative neo-conceptual works of art that focus primarily on the body. In his broad-ranging conceptual art practice, he often seeks to entertain, intrigue, shock, and most importantly, take a jab at the traditional sense of propriety and taste.

The artist’s work is eclectic, spanning performances, photography, drawing, sculpture, and avant-garde techniques of making art.

He has showcased his work in many cities worldwide, including Brussels, Paris, Seoul, Basel, New York and Hong Kong. Some of his notable artworks belong in collections of the S.M.A.K. Museum of Contemporary Art, the Louvre, the Stedelijk Museum, and the Guggenheim Museum.
