Wim Delvoye @ Perrotin New York
Belgian artist Wim Delvoye’s exhibition is now open for viewing at Perrotin New York. The exhibit showcases a series of metal sculptures and its main centrepiece is titled Maserati. The sculpture is comprised of a late 1950’s Maserati 450S racing car, detailed with eloborative Middle Eastern designs embossed by Iranian artisans.
Another featured work in the exhibit is his piece Twisted Cement Truck which includes a torqued Mercedes cement truck that stretches 12-feet high. It was designed and fabricated over the course of a year by a team of workers and consists of hundreds of lacy fragments of laser-cut stainless steel that have been bolted and welded together. In this exhibition, audience members are continuously in visual contact with Delvoye’s complex, lucid, and amused gaze at contemporary society.
