Erwin Wurm – I Am Erwin Wurm

“I am Erwin Wurm,” a showing of mixed media works from Erwin Wurm is currently on display at Galleri Bo Bjerggaard in Copenhagen. The artist worked closely with the gallery along with the Brandts Art Hall in the city of Odense which is hosting a concurrent exhibit of larger scale works.

The photographs and the sculptural elements both evoke an unnerving sensation as Wurm introduces chaotic touches that force adjustments to nearly universal perceptions. There is a sense of the artist waiting for these ideas to emerge over time. Simple moments of genius do not abound, they require patience and demand discipline. Erwin Wurm has been at this practice for some time and he keeps getting better.

“I am Erwin Wurm” the title of this exhibit demonstrates the confidence in intellect that is required to produce these works. In an often dramatic and generally over sensitive “art universe” Wurm is one of the good guys that reminds us that the mind, his and yours, is a funny place.
