After Jakob Lena Knebl (“Walk on water“) working on the boundaries between everyday objects and aesthetic objects, Jean-Hubert Martin (“No need for a drawing“) questioning the practice of collecting, then Ugo Rondinone (“When the Sun Goes Down and the Moon Goes Up“) exploring the idea of transfiguration, Wim Delvoye’s visual and conceptual shocks seem to take up all of these issues. Between local references and universal benchmarks of the history of art, the artist gives himself the means to blur the boundaries which limit our apprehension of things.
Elegant vandalism and hijackings
No imposed route here. The public is free to immerse themselves in this joyful and playful abundance of objectsreferences and interventions proposed by the artist in the name of what he himself calls “elegant vandalism”.
An artist passionate about things and artifacts, whether they are recognized works or simple objects, with this exhibition, Wim Delvoye brings pieces from the museum’s collection into dialogue with his own works.
The artist likes diversions of logic. Steal an object from its original context and transplant it in an almost magical way into another domain of reality. Everything is turned upside down, diverted, turned upside down: museum practices, our methodical and aesthetic hierarchies, our visual habits.
