Summary Named for the ancient sewer in Rome, Belgian conceptualist WimDelvoye's new and improved Cloaca is a room-sized shit-makingmachine whose bowels process two meals a day as well as a mouthfulof complex themes: scatalogy, hi-lo culture, the aesthetics of theugly and disgusting, man as machine and vice-versa. Many of thesesame concerns are processed in Delvoye's other work, including alife-sized carved walnut replica of a cement truck, a wood cabinetstocked with 32 circular saw blades painted with scenes in DelftChina blue, and a herd of pigs tattooed by Antwerp's finestneedlemen. Feces and other anal subjects are parsed in accompanyingessays by luminary philosophers, artists, and critics. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
