Erwin Wurm focuses on gestural ceramic sculptures. dissolving Performative gestures determine Wurm's anthropomorphic ceramic sculptures, whose forms oscillate between the ephemeral and the physical. The sculptures affirm the inherent plasticity of the material clay and are reminiscent of the potency of bozzetti, in which artists* from the Renaissance onwards were able to give direct expression to their innermost creative ideas. With Dissolution (2018–2020), Wurm sets out in search of clues to a creative process that cannot be definitively controlled. The English term "dissolution" means dissolution, decay, decomposition, dissolution of boundaries. The sculptures, from which fingers, hands, lips, mouths, bosoms, bellies, navels, noses and ears emerge, screw themselves out of a mass of clay.
