Gestural ceramic sculptures are the focus of Erwin Wurm. Dissolution . Performative gestures determine Wurm's anthropomorphic ceramic sculptures, whose forms oscillate between the ephemeral and physical levels. The sculptures affirm the inherent plasticity of clay as a material and are reminiscent of the power 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 to search for a creative process that cannot be ultimately controlled. The English name Dissolution means dissolution, decay, decomposition, dissolution of boundaries. The sculptures, from which fingers, hands, lips, mouths, breasts, stomachs, navels, noses and ears emerge, are screwed out of a mass of clay.
