Wim Delvoye: Rorschach / Galerie Perrotin, Paris

May 21, 2012

Rorschach, Belgian artist Wim Delvoye’s third solo show at Galerie Perrotin, opened in Paris on May 12, 2012. The show highlights the détournement and beautification of everyday objects and religious icons. Wim Delvoye’s work is provocative and at times unsettling. He has used live animals, sacred forms and banal objects within a controversial artistic process that aims at forcing the viewer to reconsider what is aesthetically pleasing and what is morally aceptable. In his solo exhbitiion at Galerie Perrotin, Delovoye appropriates the archecture of Gothic Cathedrals and the forms of religious sculptures, producing intricate manipulations of these well known forms. The show runs until June 16, 2012.
