France - Paris - Le Louvre - Wim Delvoye10/04/2012
31 May - 17 September 2012
The Louvre invites Wim Delvoye to intervene at various locations within the museum and nearby: in the galleries of the Department of Decorative Arts, under the Pyramid, and in the Tuileries gardens.
From the down-to-earth redeployment of Gothic motifs to Baroque-inspired contorted and twisted crucifixes, Delvoye's popular and decorative art, which has its roots in subversive and ironic reinterpretations of past styles, finds a particularly trenchant echo in the Louvre's collections.
Organized by Marie-Laure Bernadac.
