Wim Delvoye

°1965, Wervik, Belgium 

Wim Delvoye regards himself as an artistic engineer-manager, deviser and developer of objects of art. Art and kitsch go hand in hand in his work, as he balances between ‘high’ and ‘low culture’. In the work of art Caterpillar 5bis two completly unrelated objects are confronted with each other, namely a caterpillar tractor and a Gothic church. Thus the artist tries to find a balance between the reality of the moment and the romantic glorification of the past.
