Wim Delvoye – Anti Hero

Much like Martin Creeds Work No. 660 (Shit Film), Wim Delvoyes ‘Art Farm’ brings about a visceral reaction in the viewer. They’re aren’t many who wouldn’t be disgusted by the notion of tattooing a defenceless animal, but you can’t deny the beauty of of a tattoed pig and the effortless way in which he gets his point across, but what is his point?

“Delvoye began painting over wallpaper and carpets, coloring in the existing patterns and defying the tendency towards free expression vibrant in the art world at the time.”[wiki]

“The strength of Wim Delvoye lies in his ability to engineer conflict by combining the fine arts and folk art, and playing seriousness against irony.”[4]
