Thomas Hirshhorn, Century Pictures, Brooklyn, New York, USA
The Exhibition “The Subjecters” by Thomas Hirschhorn is open until 8 June 2019 at Century Pictures
in New York.
Thomas Hirshhorn is known for sprawling installations created from the ubiquitous detritus of our rampant consumerist society. Coalescing from ordinary materials–collaged paper, left over pieces of wood, tape, plastic bottles, and crumpled tin foil–maximalist environments emerge that subsume the viewer. Critiques of consumption, the fashion industry, nationalism and the
military–industrial complex are recurrent themes in his work.
