Austrian artist Erwin Wurm has some terrifically eye-catching works on display at BALTIC, notably a life-sized house that is very fat. Inside this chubby house is a video of the house asking questions along the lines of “Am I a house?”. But that’s not all. Inside is a truck climbing the wall of the gallery alongside two sculptures of the artist, one after having swallowed the world, the other after having done so when the world was apparently still a disc. And a stuffed dachshund that appears to have swallowed a brick watches all this very quietly.
Artist: Erwin Wurm
New Sculpture by Erwin Wurm is on until October 10th at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead, UK.
