Erwin Wurm : The Philosophy of Instructions: With the current political and social climate, it marks up the stage of transition not only links with what goes on around the SEA region but also parts of the world where the contemporaneity is constituted with a shift of systematic of thoughts at present. Whether it is neo-conservative uprising, progressive evolution, it paves the context for the exhibition to broaden beyond existing boundaries to reassess current issues at hand in their contemporaneous entirety. With the keywords such as humour, superiority, irony, mass, and contradiction are some among many, suggested to encourage new thoughts of self in relation to society. Through the sculptural works of the world famous artist, Erwin Wurm, they offer various depths of philosophy with subliminity placing audience at his central core to explore a light and humorous side yet critical state of self. The intention of the exhibition is to present the artworks of the notable artist who has long history in invstigating the possibility of art on the relative planes of self in relation to the reality in the contemporary society.
