Furniture is there to be used. No question. But nobody can tell us how to use it. And small DIY-conversions do wonders.

Austrian artist Erwin Wurm made 'Performative Sculpures' for the Braem Pavilion in his current exhibition 'Wear Me Out' at Middelheim Park in Antwerp. The 'Performative Sculptures' are converted pieces of furniture, mostly cabinets, that have had their original function altered. They now function as chair or table if not undefined. In daily performances their new functions are demonstrated.
