ERWIN WURMErwin Wurm
Erwin Wurm's Zuccheriera Sugar Box is a successful synthesis of a contemporary sculpture and a utilitarian object. Based on the Fat Car sculptures that transform the status symbol Porsche into a bloated, room-filling monstrosity, the stately silver box is a critical statement on questionable phenomena of our consumer society. At the same time, the design object is a tongue-in-cheek allusion to Benvenuto Cellini's famous Saliera. The Zuccheriera, a stately box with a plug-in lid, was created exclusively by hand. Based on a plaster prototype by Erwin Wurm, the silver sculpture was forged in highest precision by two silversmiths. Zuccheriera 5/10 was donated to MAK Vienna.
