The acclaimed American artist Tom Sachs is back. He has taken his talents to The SCHAUWERK Sindelfingen art museum in Germany. The major retrospective comes entitled as “Timeline.” The presentative serves as Sachs’ first monumental presentation in the country for over 15 years. The collection includes a series of large-scale sculptures and bricolage objects displayed throughout. The exhibition rooms of the German gallery chronicle the artist’s career.
Highlights of the retrospective include his life-sized ‘Miffy’ (2008) statue, ‘Hello Kitty Nativity’ (1994) sculptural work, and more. The ‘Chanel Guillotine’ mixed-media sculpture is included, as well as towering sculptures of the Twin Towers. Tom Sachs also provides some of his ‘Tea Ceremony’ pieces and NASA-inspired objects. One of the more eye-catching works is a makeshift McDonalds stand entitled ‘Nutsy’s McDonald’s.’ This unique piece boasts employee uniforms and a garbage bin to boot. The museum described the exhibition. They stated that Sachs’ artworks “critically questions the value of products and the meaning of existing rituals and ways of life.”
“Timeline” is on view through April 26, 2020. Take a closer look at select works from the exhibition below and find out more from SCHAUWERK Sindelfingen’s website. Keep it locked for much more from the art world here at The Culture Curators.
