From design to the installation of works in situ, this catalogue reveals the Belgian artists stylistic and technical daring.
This richly illustrated catalogue contains an essay by Jean-Pierre Criqui, editor-in-chief of Cahiers du Musée national dart modern, as well as an interview between Wim Delvoye and Marie-Laure Bernadac, chargée de mission for contemporary art at the Musée du Louvre.
