One Minute Sculptures by Austrian Artist Erwin Wurm.

Well-known Austrian artist, Erwin Wurm, who creates sculptures that include humor. Since the late 1990s he has been working on his ongoing One Minute Sculpture series. The One Minute Sculptures redefine the concept of sculpture into one of dynamic act rather than a static object. Wurm’s sculptures are wrought from the human body, choreographed into absurd, witty and often perilous, relationships with objects of everyday life.

One Minute Sculptures can happen anywhere, anytime: on a street, at home, in a hotel. Riven with a sense of imminent failure, each sculpture exists for barely a minute, before gravity triumphs, everything collapses, and the only thing to remain is a video or, in this case, a photograph.
