    Erwin Wurm was born in 1954, in Austria. He lives and works between Vienna and Limberg.

    Presented on used crates instead of traditional pedestals, the small human figures of the so-called Verschnittskulpturen (Cut-figures) series investigate the abstracted and fragmented body. Made of bronze and painted white and pink, the sculptures embody the tension inherent to the transformation of a performative action into a long-lasting pose. Here the sculpture represents the synthesis of opposing forces, both physical and emotional, traditional and surprising.
