Erwin Wurm "One Minute Sculptures" @ Open Eye Gallery, LiverpoolJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 19 Jun 2012
Austrian artist Erwin Wurm, probably one of the most innovative contemporary artists we can think of that can seemlessly involve conceptual, sculptural, installation, and mixed media works all into one piece, is set to revisit and showcase his late 1990's project, One Minute Sculptures, at Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool, England.
From the Gallery: "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 exhibition runs from June 22—September 22, 2012.
