Biography   Erwin Wurm

Erwin Wurm (born 1954)

Born in 1954 in Bruck and der Mur in Austria, Wurm lives in Vienna and New York. He creates sculptures, drawings, video art, installations and photographs. Since the late 1980s he has developed an ongoing series of "One Minute Sculptures," in which he poses himself or his models in unexpected, often absurd, whimsical or even dangerous relationships with everyday objects, 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.
