Erwin Wurm: One Minute ForeverErwin Wurm: One Minute Forever

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Maja Kolaric, Jérôme Sans.

Vienna-based artist Erwin Wurm (born 1954) is internationally known for recasting sculpture through the prisms of performance, video, drawing and photography. This volume showcases a selection of works from the artist’s oeuvre, spanning from 1993 to the present day, that demonstrate the artist’s decades-long commitment to twisting sculpture into a resolutely participative and playful medium. The selection includes several photographs from Wurm’s ongoing series One Minute Sculptures (1988–present)—in which he captures participants holding an unconventional pose for 60 seconds—as well as other iconic works, including Narrow House (2011), Fat Car (2001–04) and Fat House (2003). One Minute Forever also displays the artist’s new series of performative sculptures, clay models of the most important Yugoslav modernist buildings in Belgrade, created in honor of the catalog’s accompanying exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade.

Erwin Wurm: Performative SculpturesErwin Wurm: Performative Sculptures

Published by Verlag für moderne Kunst.
Edited with text by Stella Rollig, Severin Dünser, Alfred Weidinger.

With the Performative Sculptures, Erwin Wurm gets his hands dirty, attacking models or raw blocks of clay and deforming them by either physical exertion alone or other external means. Afterwards, the artist often casts the abused models in either bronze, aluminium, iron or polyester resin, and then paints them either in color or with an applied patina. Tension arises in the dialogue between the original form of objects and the traces left by the performative interventions, which turn the body into the material and the medium of action.

These works were comprehensively presented at the 21er Haus in 2017 for the first time. A majority of the 54 performative sculptures and statues have been developed especially for this exhibition. This catalog provides comprehensive insight into the cycle of works and analyses them against within the context of his artistic development.
