Austrian artist, Erwin Wurm, has taken over the outdoor plaza of the Standard Hotel in New York with am 18-foot, 1.6-ton sculpture of a headless box man. The artist’s new sculpture titled “Big Kastenmann” now occupies the space where KAWS' sculpture “Companion Passing Through” once stood last summer.  A giant crane needed to install the large piece and the following video documents the installation process.
