Erwin Wurm, an artist living and working in Vienna, combines various art forms: sculpture, photography and performance into a unique personal view of the everyday world. Drawing on history, humour and philosophy, Wurm creates light-hearted art works with at times serious messages. His new large sculptural works created specifically for this exhibition, which have a grand theatrical scale, attract us to interact and participate.
Beauty Business is Wurm's first cohesive focus on the home or dwelling. As the architect Le Corbusier once remarked, the purpose of architecture is to move us, then with his work Erwin Wurm consistently realizes architecture's highest aim: he creates works whose extraordinary power lies not only in how deeply they make us feel, but also in how they let us see the complexity of our feelings, in meaningful environments which help us to dwell. This exhibition is produced in collaboration with the Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach.
