The work of Wim Delvoye (*1965, lives in Brighton) is often classified as neo-conceptual art. Even though Delvoye plays with the concept of the industrially manufactured product and the idea of mass production that is part of our contemporary consumer society, his choice of materials betrays his love for craftsmanship and tradition. In the work of Delvoye everything is topsy-turvy. Comparable to the idea of the carnivalesque of Bakhtin, the profane is combined with the sacred and elements of high and low culture come together. With this shift comes a certain tension, which forms the central moving force behind his oeuvre.
