Erwin Wurm

Austrian artist Wurm has spent his career redefining the sculptural, but of all his works the best-known are the One Minute Sculptures which he began to develop in 1998.

To complete these pieces, members of the public are asked to adopt poses consisting of written instructions, diagrams and any props needed to carry them out, such as "lie on the balls - no part of the body should touch the ground" or "put the felt markers between your fingers and think of Rene Descartes".

These are then photographed, or viewed live in galleries as part of an ever-changing human installation.

His concept places utimate responsibility for the creative act firmly in the hands of others, with the public at the centre of their own impromptu performances.
