WPS1’s Althea Viafora Kress talks with artist Wim Delvoye / part 1/2

WPS1 art radio host Althea Viafora Kress and Belgian artist Wim Delvoye sit down in Danny Meyer’s Café One at the Armory show 2007. Hear the social, cultural and political contradictions. His “Art Pig Farm” in China where Delvoye, a vegetarian, tattoos his pigs and “harvests” his art. The “Cloaca Machines“ his sculpture that is fed in museums and has a digestive system from beginning to end. And Euterpe. Once you hear it and see it you can’t take their contradictions apart. It’s not classical art, modernism or formalism. It’s not high or low. What is this new pollination of practices? The Armory Show 2007, March 24, 2007. Part 1/2.
