Erwin Wurm is an Austrian sculptor, inspired by popular culture, well known for using everyday objects (furniture, houses, cars, clothes, plastic bottles) for his particular exploration of space, potential form and volume. In his particular quest the human body has a prominent role and is considered as the perfect canvas of experimentation. His art is smart, humorous, interactive.
This summer, Erwin Wurm presented his “Wear me out” project (29 May to 25 September 2011), an exhibition held in open air at Middelheim Museum of Antwerp. He also invited fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck to collaborate for the occasion.
