(Bruck an der Mur *1954)
Erwin Wurm is an internationally renowned Austrian artist. He became known, above all, for his "One Minute Sculptures" and his "Fat" sculptures. The former are photographs of people posing in a whimsical way with everyday objects.
His formalist style, which is characterised by a humorous approach, is reflected in unusual depictions of everyday life. This always seems to be about expanding the concept of sculpture, in the course of which the boundaries between action, performance and sculpture are repeatedly explored anew.
The humorous-satirical added value makes his work, which has already been shown in America, Europe and Asia, accessible to a wide audience.
