Field trip: Erwin Wurm

The artist as pickled cucumber. This self-portrait, shown in his recent solo-exhibition, says a lot about the artistic strategy of Austrian artist Erwin Wurm. Whether his famous one-minute sculptures, almost immaterial work between sculpture and performance requiring the visitor to follow the artist's detailed instructions, or his deformed cars and bodies: everything's equipped with Wurm's acid sense of humour.
The show is travelling to Bonn, Vienna, Bejing, etc.
