Wim Delvoye "Love letter from Mohamed to Caroline"


Brussels Belgium


Brussels Regional Parliament



Wim Delvoye composed a love letter by means of 36 photos of potato peel. Each frame contains the photo of a potato peel which, by the way it is cut, designates a word in classical Arabic, with the whole work forming a love letter from Mohamed to Caroline: “My dearest Caroline, I was so happy to receive your letter. I think of you incessantly night and day. I can still feel the heat of your burning lips against mine. How could I have deserved that you love me, you, so pure and so beautiful. I cannot believe it. I love you. Tomorrow will be a big day. Thank you, my love. I love you. Mohamed“
