“My fascination with the gothic is that it isn’t dark at all. For me it shows something like European springtime.” – Wim Delvoye

This gothic series of works by Wim Delvoye blends the shapes of industrial machinery with medieval architecture. His work is rooted in love of tradition, craftsmanship, and engineering combined with an openness to the world.

A large scale model 1/1 (similar design) was shown in Yokohama Museum of Art in 2014, and now the Flatbed trailer is part of the permanent collection at MONA, Hobart Tasmania
