The Austrian sculptor Erwin Wurm (*1954), internationally known for his „One Minute Sculptures“, his Fat Cars, and deformed objects, transforms the large exhibition hall of the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg into a German forest. The spectacular presentation of gigantic, real fir trees forms the frame of reference for forty, mainly new sculptural works, sixteen of which were made especially for this show. Responding to Wolfsburg as the city of motorcars, Wurm changes an original Volkswagen van into a Curry Bus, a „fat hot dog stand,“ as he calls it-which will be parked in front of the entrance to the museum, welcoming the visitors. With his bizarrely shaped cars, houses, and figures, the sculptor conveys his own humorous view of everyday objects and life itself-a view that can be somewhat disturbing, as well as philosophical.
