Austrian sculptor Erwin Wurm displays twisted wit in his current show, Narrow Mist, on view through September 10, 2010, at UCCA.
Wurm’s work at the Beijing museum plays on perceptions of reality. Included is “Narrow House,” (detail above) which not surprisingly is a thin house – a normal size home squeezed to a 1 meter width. Included is furnishing full of 1970s nostalgia.
