Contemporary Austrian sculptor Erwin Wurm has taken on a weighty topic with a recent sculpture series: our dependence on automobiles and obesity. But the result, “Fat Cars,” seems more silly than serious.
Wurm’s candy-colored car creations have bloated, oversized bodies that look more like chewed-up wads of bubble gum than driving machines. The Fat Cars’ bodies are made from polyurethane foam, styrofoam and polyester, according to the Pennsylvania-based West Collection, a gallery housing one of Wurm’s creations. What we’re wondering is, where do you buy replacement fenders?
