Erwin Wurm challenges conceptions of sculpture, space and the human form. His work straddles abstraction and representation, presenting familiar objects in a surprising, inventive and often humorous way that prompts viewers to consider them in a new light: “If you approach things with a sense of humour, 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 humour can help you see things in a lighter vein.”
