Perpetrator, prankster, unlicensed scatologist–Wim Delvoye wears many hats in this book documenting his exposure of certain hidden–often orifice-related–aspects of our existence. In his new monograph, this Belgian post-Pop artist continues to create works that transcend traditional categorical distinctions–when it comes to Delvoye, we speak not of painting or sculpture but of semiotic installations. His works Windroos, Xrub’se, and Concrete Mixer S.P. II–all documented here–debunk centuries of Western anal retentiveness in one fell poop. The remarkable list of authors whose texts contribute to this volume–including such luminaries as Georges Perec, Piero Camporesi, Raymond Roussel, Milan Kundera, John Berger, and Georges Bataille–testifies to the deep theoretical, literary, and of course artistic resonance of his work. Delvoye’s work evidences a supreme humorous and creative intelligence rarely seen in today’s art world–his work never fails to enlighten and entertain with its irreverence and style.
