Erwin Wurm is an Australian artist. Since the late 1980s he has developed an ongoing series of “One Minute Sculptures,” in which he poses himself or his models in unexpected relationships with everyday objects close at hand, prompting the viewer to question the very definition of sculpture. He seeks to use the “shortest path” in creating a sculpture — a clear and fast, sometimes humorous, form of expression. As the sculptures are fleeting and meant to be spontaneous and temporary, the images are only captured in photos or on film.
Somehow he has interest with chubby things, he has made fat car, fat house and many interesting fat sculptures.
Fat House (2003), a large-scale sculpture on display outside BALTIC on Baltic Square has its first UK showing. Inside the house a video piece entitled Am I a House? (2005), is the actual voice of the house asking itself a series of poignant questions.
A UFO car.
Wurm placed the house atop the Museum Moderner Kunst for the opening of his exhibition there last year.
