• Living Sculptures by Erwin Wurm at Berlinische Galerie (Berlin)



    Two weeks ago, on April 15th, the Berlinische Galerie opened to show the works of the renowned Austrian artist Erwin Wurm, which can be visited until August 22nd, 2016.

    Wurm’s exhibition, entitled, Bei Mutti – translated from German, At Mom’s – surprised us with the display of a key element, a rebuilding house that apparently seems like his parents’ house; however, the artist has given a special touch, and the depth is just over one meter. When walking inside the house visitors literally experience the constrictions of provincial life. This work accompanies several sculptures that invite us to use everyday objects in a different way – such as in the photo with the bag on the head. The instructions are to stop in each of them during one minute to adopt unusual poses, turning those everyday objects into  living sculptures.

    The last section of Wurm’s work is a comprehensive display of drawings, which in of itself, is a première. In conclusion, we can see that the whole exhibition is related to the human body and bodily sensations with reaction to a personal nostalgic association to home. With this exhibition, you experience yourself the space museum and naturally the meaning of sculptures in a totally new way, and this is obviously the most extraordinary aspect of his entire work.
