Second of all, Erwin Wurm is popular with his humorous approach. If you check his works, you will find humor, which is wisely used by the artist. According to the artist, you do not have to be deadly sarcastic or serious. You need to find a balance between the two.

 

Declining

As we expect every artist to criticize society positively or negatively, Wurm makes criticisms of Western society with his works. Although many people find his works ridiculous or meaningless, he tries to say something very serious. The themes of his works include everyday life objects and our relationship with them, today’s body image, philosophy, and postwar Austria.
