BUTTER DISH by ERWIN WURM - Little Big House
Limited edition : 300 copies numbered.
MADE IN EU
Dimensions: 6 x 7.5 x 4 inches
The Little Big House butter dish edition by the Austrian artist Erwin Wurm is a ceramic tableware intended, not without irony, to welcome a fair amount of fresh butter.
This limited edition is based on the Fat House series of sculptures the artist started in 2003.
These houses are part of a body of work in which Wurm gives artefacts properties usually reserved to biological organisms. The artist stages a series of symbols of our consumers society. Swollen life-size cars or houses deliver a snappy commentary.
Wurm thus directed a video in which one of the Fat House asks existential questions to the viewer, such as: ‘Am I an artwork because I am fat?’ Looking humorous at first glance the Fat House serie is casting doubt on our notions of common sense.
