About

Since the late 1980s, Belgian artist Wim Delvoye has been challenging the art world status quo through a multidisciplinary practice that includes sculpture, drawing, photography, installation, and video. Montreal audiences were first introduced to his work in 2009 through the presentation of Cloaca No. 5 at the Galerie de l’UQAM. Part of a larger series, this provocative machine/sculptural work reproduced the human digestive system whereby food was processed and transformed into waste matter. This initiation into Delvoye’s œuvre offered insight into his examination of consumerism and his critique of our intensely capitalist society. At DHC/ART, a major presentation of recent sculpture, drawing, and video will take us deeper into his study of a range of related topics, including branding, class, the economy, technology, and globalisation.
