Graeme Reed, Director of Collections and Exhibitions, Museum of Wisconsin Art will discuss the sculpture Half Big Suit by Erwin Wurm.
Figurative sculpture comes and goes depending on the decade and art fashion of the time. Austrian artist Erwin Wurm has clung to the category, often making sculptures that are both humorous and potent. His lacquered aluminum Half Big Suit, 2016 is a larger than life pink suit, one leg raised at a ninety-degree angle. The figure is severed cleanly in half, interrupting the realism and asking the viewer to consider the potential meanings of the piece.
