Altered States

'Telekinetically Altered VW' is artist Erwin Wurm's contribution to the large hall of sculpture at Art Basel (collectively presented as Art Unlimited). Wurm impressed SHOWstudio recently with his short film '59 Positions', and here presents another contortion - this time of an inanimate object by a human mind via telekinesis. Whether Illusion or sculptural transformation this is an endearing take on the transference of belief onto objects, an enduring passtime of the international art world.
