This summer, Delirious, the tenth edition of the international sculpture exhibition Lustwarande, will be taking place at park De Oude Warande in Tilburg, the Netherlands. This jubilee edition will show a wide range of developments in contemporary sculpture. The curators—Chris Driessen and David Jablonowski—have selected 25 artists, including Isabelle Andriessen, Steven Claydon, Claudia Comte, Camille Henrot and Sarah Lucas. Most of the works have been specially created for the exhibition.
 
Focus on skin
Lustwarande aims to highlight current developments in contemporary sculpture. Delirious will be showing works in which the focus is on the skin of sculpture. Artists are now mixing “old-fashioned” materials, such as clay, wood and marble, with modern plastics, 3D printing and found objects.
 
Giant courgettes
Delirious will be showing a number of impactful and eye-catching works, made by both emerging artists and by more established names, such as a seven-metre-long sculpture by Isabelle Andriessen; a large and organic marble sculpture by Claudia Comte; an eclectic totem pole, almost five metres tall, by Steven Claydon; a three-metre-high sculpture in bronze, steel and copper by Camille Henrot; and Sarah Lucas’s giant courgettes, almost five metres long, one made of concrete, the other of bronze.
