The pickle is a recurring figure in Erwin Wurm’s work. In 2008, he created an installation titled Selbstportät all Gurken (Self-portrait in pickles). To compose the piece, he emptied a jar of pickles, encapsulating each one within painted resin, and placing them on individual pedestals. Each condiment was then photographed following the same protocol. The artist’s book Self-portrait as 47 pickles presents this series of photographs.
