Wim Delvoye - Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art
Published on the occasion of an exhibition of work by Belgian neo-conceptual artist Wim Delvoye at the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, curated by Leila Varasteh and Vida Zaim, this beautifully bound and illustrated volume demonstrates not only the diversity of the artist’s oeuvre, but also reflects his ability to blur the line between tradition and modernity. Incorporating a wide range of artistic practices, from the Northern Gothic style to the geometrical patterns of Islamic art, and from Iranian traditional painting and Dutch Delftware to embossed ornaments, crucifixes, gas canisters, vehicular parts, and laboratory equipment, Delvoye’s artworks hold inherent contradictions.
