Museum Tinguely

Wim Delvoye

14.06.2017 - 01.01.2018

The Museum Tinguely is to dedicate a major solo exhibition to the Belgian artist Wim Delvoye in the summer of 2017. In addition to his best known works, the "Cloaca”, which are machines that simulate human digestion and produce excrement that is visually indistinguishable from human excrement, the show will also feature pieces such as "Chantier” (1992), a construction site carved entirely out of wood and the huge "Cement Truck” (2016) in its original size. With a hefty shot of irony, wit and humour, this conceptualist provocateur often combines the decorative with the quotidian and by doing so casts doubt on consumer society's conventional value systems.

In collaboration with MUDAM, Luxembourg
