Wim Delvoye is a much talked about and controversial artist. Since the second-half of the 1980s, he’s decorated modern, familiar objects. In the art world he stands out due to his fascination for the banal, the everyday and the culture of kitsch. He always combines ‘almost-art’ with modern objects that are associated with daily life. By bringing together elements from different contexts the individual images lose their familiar nature. In doing so, Delvoye uses and creates contradictions, mainly between surface (skin) and content (support): the painting often becomes a support for the object.
