Erwin Wurm : One Minute Sculptures
8th - 30th September : Festival Images – Capacity limited to 12 people
For his One Minute Sculptures, Erwin Wurm asks the audience to adopt a far-fetched posture with daily objects for one minute following a specific format. For his exhibition at Villa “Le Lac” Le Corbusier, the Austrian artist has specifically created replicas of furniture found in the famous Swiss architect’s house. By adding holes inside them, he enables visitors to squeeze inside. Considered extravagant when it was built in 1923-1924, the house inhabited by Le Corbusier’s parents transforms into a gallery of whimsical sculptures for the duration of Festival Images. This project is in direct relation to the installation Narrow House(No 59), a compressed version of the childhood home of Erwin Wurm presented at Salle del Castillo.
