Sex & bourgeois desires – Elizabeth Wurst „Simple kind of life“


A woman in a provocative outfit approaches a brand new model house. She starts kissing, holding and caressing the domecile as her desire for posessing it grows. This work engages with the fetichized commodity, in this case, a prefabricated house, whose purpose is to hold a model family.

Elizabeth Wurst, born 1985 in Lima – Peru, is a video performance artist with solo exhibitons shown in China and Iceland. She lives and works in Peru and Germany. From 2006 to 2011 she studied at the HBK Fine Arts University of Braunschweig, Germany.
