A major figure on the Belgian art scene, Wim Delvoye is known for his humour, his taste for technological experimentation, and his rich and varied production.
Conceived in close collaboration with the artist, the exhibition by the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium offers an impressive panorama of his work and emphasizes its multidisciplinary aspect.
Wim Delvoye is an attentive observer of his era, exploring the future to uncover upcoming trends, all the while keeping his view solidly anchored in the past and the traditions. Indeed, his art is often the result of a combination of craftsmanship and the most sophisticated industrial manufacturing techniques. In a new way, the exhibition brings together masterpieces from the RMFAB's collection of ancient art with the artist's creations, that were directly inspired by this setting.
Another exclusive feature: Wim Delvoye presents his newest works for the first time to the public. These art works testify to the artist's attentive view of the changes taking place in our hyper-connected societies, where lines between reality and virtual worlds are increasingly blurry.
