Erwin Wurm: Peace & Plenty

Erwin Wurm: Peace & Plenty
Library Shelf Location 18.WURM
Publication Date 2018

Erwin Wurm draws almost every day, be it when he is at home or on the road. He works with easily available paper in various qualities and formats.

Peace & Plenty, also the name of the hotel on the Bahamas where many of the drawings were done, refers both to the situation and to the sheer amount of the drawings. 447 works on paper, in pencil, crayon, ballpoint-pen or as watercolors and collages, are reflections, commentaries on the world, storehouses of ideas.

Thematically, they resemble a diary, given that people turn up in them with whom Erwin Wurm is in contact, artist-friends, family, but also self-portraits and current projects, be that ideas for One Minute Sculptures or drawings of caravans and trucks for his project for the 2017 Venice Biennale.
