SELECTED WORKS 1970-2015 B. WURTZ

Published by BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, 2015, 162 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 22.5 × 28.5 cm, English

Price: €20

Produced on the occasion of B.Wurtz’s survey shows at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead and La Casa Encendida, Madrid in 2015.

For more than 40 years, B. Wurtz has collected common, domestic objects – carrier bags, aluminium roasting trays, buttons, shoelaces – and repurposed them into meticulously formal constructions that are balanced, fragile, yet sometimes discordant. His raw material is the stuff we constantly use and constantly overlook; things that connect to life in its most everyday sense.

Wurtz’s sculpture maintains an adherence to classical forms and a play with art history, all the while responding to three fundamental needs outlined early in the artist’s career: sleeping, eating and keeping warm.
