Erwin Wurm’s One-Minute Sculptures

Austrian artist Erwin Wurm’s (b. 1954) One Minute Sculptures are equal parts sculpture, performance, and image. Here is an interview with Wurm about the series.

“If you approach things with a sense of humor,” the artist says, “people immediately assume you’re not to be taken seriously. But I think truths about society and human existence can be approached in different ways. You don’t always have to be deadly serious. Sarcasm and humor can help you see things in a lighter vein.”

Sculpture I students: for our next class meeting, bring as many props as possible for an in-class “One-Minute Sculpture” workshop, as well as, a camera (preferred) or camera phone for documentation.

Spontaneity will be rewarded: “First thought, best thought”
