The master of famous surrealistic sculptures Erwin Wurm comes to Moscow. The exhibition "ABSTRACT ABSTRUSE" opens on September 5 at Winzavod. He is also announced as a special guest of V Moscow Biennale of Contemporary art. Wurm ranks among the most influential artists in fine art and is famous for his ironic criticism of the contemporary society.
Inflatable houses, fat cars and quaint human figures. Ordinary items form the basis of the artist`s works, which later change their sizes and shapes in a funny way. Wurm plays with viewers` perception and notes different sides of life which had been considered repulsive but became standard nowadays. According to Wurm, he is chiefly interested in everyday life.
More than 30 works including famous houses and a new series of abstract works made of rubber sausages will be presented at the exhibition "ABSTRACT ABSTRUSE". The works of a famous series "drinking sculptures" - which represent different hybrid of vintage furniture - will be brought for the first time. At the opening you will find a bottle of some beverage and a glass near every object.
