EXHIBITION - FOOTBALL-SIZED LUMP OF CLAY ON LIGHT BLUE CAR ROOF
The exhibition by Erwin Wurm (*1954 in Bruck an der Mur) in the Kunsthaus Graz takes as its starting point the open architectural structure of the Kunsthaus. Elements of the performative, participatory and sculptural form are thus connected to one another and to the building. In Wurm’s work essential lines of development in the sculpture of the 20th and 21st century emerge – from the object, to the action, to the creating of the image. Presence and absence move through Wurm’s work as issues, whereby absences in particular (whether of an object or a person) stimulate the power of the imagination.
