Wim Delvoye 

At Galerie Perrotin Paris

Upon entering into the gallery, a set of five aluminium rimowa suitcases are present. though recognizable in form, delvoye has emblazoned their surfaces with imagery that range from his own, personal coat of arms, to miniature persian patterns. each hand embossed travelling case thus is transformed into bas-relief sculptures which speak of a globalized world.

Absurdly intricate details drawing from art and architecture movements of the past — most notably sacred gothic architecture, to 19th century sculptures — combined with subtle influences 

The belgian artist employs these themes and genres by reinterpreting and visualizing them through daily objects, deforming these motives that drive his work to recreae a genuine cabinet of curiosities of wunderkammer. galerie perrotin in

German artist Evelyn Bracklow of La Philie decided to combine the elegance of vintage porcelain with the grossness of a horde of ants in a series she calls Chitins Gloss. Various dining pieces such as plates, tea cups, and jugs are all crawling with ants, as if your kitchen is having some sort of ant-infestation.
