Wim Delvoye | Artist Action Figure

WIM DELVOYE: Yes, my doll, a Wim action figure with accessories. My whole life story is reduced to a caricature. The box set, which is like a GI Joe, includes an artist action figure, a tattoo gun, a Cloaca machine, a mobile phone, an outfit for wearing to a gallery opening and boots for the farm. It’s manufactured in Shenzhen. We’re working on an improved second generation and have plans for a third that is specifically about the Art Farm, including plastic tattooed pigs. We’ve learned a lot from Mattel, the toy manufacturer, and even altered their slogan to read, “You can tell it’s not Mattel.”
