This Austrian Artist Really Messed Up Some Furniture

New, 2 comments

Austrian artist Erwin Wurm must be really mad at furniture, because he made a bunch of very realistic pieces (a chair, a sideboard, a fridge, etc.) out of clay, then he beat the crap out of them, and then he cast the beat up furniture pieces in bronze or polyester, and now he is displaying his kills in a gallery in Paris, propping them up as warnings to any other pieces of furniture that might want to mess with him.

Or maybe there's an artistic reason. Either way, this furniture got messed up.
