Since the 1970s, the American artist B. Wurtz (*1948 in Pasadena, California, USA) has been dismantling sculpture and painting and putting them back together so they obey unfamiliar gravitational laws. With a delightful arbitrariness, all the objects in his work must ‘have to do with clothes, food or shelter’. Sculpture, in his hands, is a reaching for the sky by putting one piece of bit of old wood on top of the other. He makes virtues of whimsy and doubt.
