Wim Delvoye – Past Auction Results

http://www.artnet.com/Artists/LotDetailPage.aspx?lot_id=B069443F09E292E568F2A1CF12DF290D

In my last post, I was talking about asian artists mixing ancient and modern cultural references. It made me think about the sulfurous inventive belgian artist Wim Delvoye.
In his ‘Gothic Works’, he links well-known icons of art history and common popular objects, like Notre Dame of Paris’ cathedral and a caterpillar or a dump truck ( here:’Caterpillar scale model n5, 2002).
Result? – Amusement of course, admiration for the sculptor’s craftmanship and creativity, but doesn’t the artist invite us also to a reflection about contemporary art? What will survive, confronted to gothic cathedrals?
