Encounter at the exhibition Erwin Wurm: Away at Home
Encounter with the assistant curator, Amit Shemma
Tel Aviv Museum of Art presents the first solo exhibition in Israel of works by Erwin Wurm, one of Austria’s most prominent contemporary artists and a renowned figure internationally.
Wurm will present two “chapters.” One is a massive outdoor sculpture entitled Narrow House – a replica of Wurm’s childhood home that has been squeezed into 1.1 m width and pivoted at an unusual angle. The other is a new set of One Minute Sculptures — his signature work — using Israeli-made furniture from the 1950s and 1960s. Thus, the exhibition will address the relationship between exterior and interior; European versus Israeli aesthetics and post-war sensibilities; and the way our minds and bodies relate to everyday objects and surroundings.
Spaces are limited.
Participation in the encounter includes entrance ticket to the Museum.
