PERMANENT INSTALLATION SINCE 2007
This is a characteristic Erwin Wurm piece in which a familiar form deviates subtly from reality. As the title indicates, this piece causes doubt and a sense of uncertainty in the observer: it is MISCONCEIVABLE, open to misunderstanding.
As with other sculptures by Wurm, MISCONCEIVABLEcombines an exploration of the limits and opportunities offered by a sculpture with an absurdist humor and an unpleasant undertone of impotence. The location of the boat ensures that it will be an important landmark for the museum. The monumental work is a striking landmark at the main entrance to the art park on the Middelheimlaan.
