Erwin Wurm: One Minute Sculptures

22 June - 2 September 2012

Cult artist Erwin Wurm (b. Austria), whose followers include Flea from the US band the Red Hot Chili Peppers, uses photography and film to capture transient sculptural works.

Since the late 1990s Wurm has been developing One Minute Sculptures, an ongoing series in which we see the artist or his models pose in spontaneous ways with everyday items, inserting pencils in ears, propping chairs on eyes, and bringing a host of inanimate objects to life.

Open Eye Gallery is proud to present a selection of eighteen photographs of Wurm’s earliest One Minute Sculptures, made in the late 1990s.

“The fundamental steps consisted in abandoning the idea of durability and infinity. Sculpture could also last for just a few minutes, a few seconds. The works were transported to the level of the immediate present.” Erwin Wurm

Presented with both a good dose of humour and an underlying cynicism, One Minute Sculptures question the definition of sculpture, and wider issues about our consumer-focused society.
