The Austrian artist Erwin Wurm (b. 1954\, Bru ck an der Mur) has successfully established himself on the international ar t scene for several years now\, such as with his One Min ute Sculptures (stagings of mostly bizarre situations that have been c aptured in photographs) and his defamiliarizations of objects (such as Fat Car).


In the focus of the a rtist’s first one-man show at the Albertina is a new group of works that is currently in the process of completion. In it\, Erwin Wurm deals with the human body in a cross-media approach by confronting the real manifestation of the body in the 21st century with the body language of Gothic art\, whic h results from the spirit of internalization and asceticism.
