There is more good news from foreign shores for the city's art fraternity. Legendary Belgian artist Wim Delvoye's works will open at Colaba's Volte gallery shortly. The second living artist to show his work at Louvre (after Tony Cragg) Delvoye is also expected to make frequent visits to the city.
Delvoye, who's hugely influenced by Gothic and neo-Gothic art, is known for marrying diverse artistic forms with folk art - a reason why the Musée du Louvre invited him to put up his installation there. His presence at the Louvre consists of a series of new works presented within the luxurious apartments of Napoleon III and in a room devoted to medieval Gothic. It is visible from the entrance, in the form of the monumental Suppo, installed beneath I M Pei's glass Pyramid.
But here's what Mumbai should celebrate. The upcoming showing is not the only thing you can look forward to. Delvoye will create an onsite sculpture here, which will travel around the world only after its Indian debut.
