Erwin Wurm

This weekend, a friend introduced me to the work of Austrian artist Erwin Wurm, whom I suppose could best be described as a conceptual sculptor. His medium varies – from drawings to photography to foam to performance – but regardless of form and material, there are common themes throughout the work. Most notably, a sort of demystifying of art and it’s related fields – a figurative, and sometimes literal, deflation.The following examples aren’t particularly representative of his work as a whole, but since this is supposed to be an architecture blog, they’re probably the most interesting to you, dear reader. Plus, the field of architecture can always use a little deflating.
