With the current political and social climate, it marks up the stage of transition not only links with what goes on around the SEA
region but also parts of the world where the contemporaneity is constituted with a shift of systematic of thoughts at present.
Whether it is neo-conservative uprising, progressive evolution, it paves the context for the exhibition to broaden beyond existing
boundaries to reassess current issues at hand in their contemporaneous entirety. With the keywords such as humour, superiority,
irony, mass, and contradiction are some among many, suggested to encourage new thoughts of self in relation to society.
Through the sculptural works of the world famous artist, Erwin Wurm, they offer various depths of philosophy with subliminity
placing audience at his central core to explore a light and humorous side yet critical state of self. The intention of the exhibition
is to present the artworks of the notable artist who has long history in investigating the possibility of art on the relative planes
of self and the reality in the contemporary society.

Artist: Erwin Wurm

Curator: Pichaya Aime Suphavanij 



Erwin Wurm
(b. 1954, Austria)

Erwin Wurm is an Austrian living and working in Vienna and Limberg, Austria. Since the late 1980s, he has developed an ongoing series of One Minute Sculptures, in which he poses himself or his models in unexpected relationships with everyday objects close
at hand, prompting the viewer to question the very definition of sculpture. He seeks to use the unique path in creating a
sculpture - a clear and fast, sometimes humorous form of expression. His works are included in prestigious collections through
out the world at the Albertina, Vienna; Vancouver Art Gallery, Canada; Centre Pompidou, Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris;
Kunstmuseum Bonn; Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna; CAC Malaga, Spain; Kunsthaus Zurich; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum,
New York; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and Albright-Knox Gallery, New York, among others. The artist lives and works in
Vienna, Austria.
