In addition to the mentioned one-minute sculptures (One Minute Sculptures), the exhibition also presents other iconic works by the author, such as Narrow House, Fat Car, Fat House, abstract and performative sculptures, but also accompanying media in which the artist works continuously and which are an integral part of his artistic vocabulary, such as photographs, video works, performances, drawings and paintings, as well as significant new production.
Especially for the exhibition in Belgrade, Wurm performed a new series of his performative sculptures in clay, according to the models of the most important buildings belonging to the Yugoslav modernist heritage of Belgrade. In this regard, this comprehensive exhibition, conceived as introspective rather than retrospective, seeks to showcase Erwin Wurm’s rich and diverse oeuvre, as well as the diversity of media in which the artist creates and constantly develops and researches in parallel.
