Wim Delvoye exhibition at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium
From 22 March to 21 July, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts are hosting a vast exhibition by the artist Wim Delvoye.
Visitors can stroll around the often monumental creations by an artist known for his humour and his taste for experimenting with technology. This is a real journey through time, where the past and its traditions stand side-by-side with the modern day, also looking ahead to the future. It encompasses East and West, technology and science.
The exhibition has three main focuses: online video games, a retrospective of the last 20 years and a dialogue with the great masters of the history of art.
The 70 works on display include 15 new works: twisted statues, bas-reliefs inspired by video games and other everyday objects turned into works of art. It is a journey into the heart of an impressive body of work and showcases its multidisciplinary nature.
Born in Wilrijk in 1965, Delvoye currently lives in Ghent and Brighton; his reputation has travelled far beyond our borders and he has exhibited in places such as Azerbaijan, Quebec and Russia, although this is his first exhibition in Belgium for ten years.
All the exhibition information can be found on the website of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts.
