I Love My Time, I Don't Like My Time: Recent Works by Erwin Wurm

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Austrian artist Erwin Wurm has gained an international reputation for challenging traditional notions of sculpture, photography, performance art and drawing. His classic One Minute Sculptures invite audiences to participate in the creation of temporary sculpture by combining their bodies with a variety of common objects according to the artist's instructional drawings. I Love my Time, I Don't Like my Time:, a comprehensive survey, highlights more than ten years of smart, beautiful and humorous production. The exhibition includes staged situations for the creation of selected One Minute Sculptures; the photo series of Instructions for Idleness (2001), How to be Politically Incorrect (2002-2003), Thinking About Philosophy ( 2004 ) and Hotel Rooms (2001 ). Also included are a selection of videos, including 59 Positions (1992), Flight Simulator (1998) and Adelphi Sculptures (1999) among other projects. The centerpiece will be the Fat House/I love my time, I don't like my time (2003), the latest in Wurm's series about mass that explores the wild and dark potential of digital animation.
