The Big Suit (also known as The Empty Suit to many)
"Erwin Wurm (Austria) chooses everyday objects as the subject of his work in an attempt to inspire viewers to question both the traditional definition of sculpture and their relationship to the world. Big Suit plays with our perception of volume, one of the basic elements of scultpure by creating an outer shell of cast aluminum that defines the mass we imagine inside the pink suit.Through the use of unexpected color and monumental scale (9 feet tall) the artist provides a powerful commentary on the fragility of the individual and the way the material world shapes our self-image"

I think you should to improve this picture .... when I saw it was hard to imagine how big is this sculpture ... in this picture there is a lack something that will help define the size scale ...
I think that the size of this sculpture is a principal means idea expression of ​​the sculptor ... :-)
