"Big Kastenmann” by Erwin Wurm at the Standard Hotel

July 27, 2012

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.
