A human skull rests atop a modest wooden table flanked by a chronometer, books, musical instruments, an earthenware pot, and swathes of silk. Harmen Steenwyck’s Still Life: An Allegory of the Vanities of Human Life (1612-1656) is emblematic of the vanitas genre, most commonly known for its intimate tabletop tableaux alluding to the transient nature of all worldly goods and pursuits. Upon entering Vanitas – Nothing is Forever Anyway at Berlin’s Georg Kolbe Museum, one immediate... [more]

Thomas Schütte at Serpentine Gallery September 25th, 2012 - November 18th, 2012
Posted 11/11/12

The Serpentine Gallery—which at times can feel like a summer pavilion, a cabin, a conservatory or a private chapel—always seems to attain its most sacred air in the autumn, when the light is failing and the mist rises to blur the view to the road. There is of course a certain degree of standard-issue white-cube-ness to the interior; however, this is offset by architectural hangovers from the building's past life as a 1930s tea house, and the gallery's most successful exhibitions tend to be those...

The choice to show a complete set of recent engravings by Thomas Schütte was conceived as an echo of the Bruno Perramant exhibition. The Alte Freunde ("Old Friends") series is based on the famous eponymous series (see illustration below) consisting of small sculptures in Fimo polymer clay that Schütte made in the early 90's. Mounted on small wooden stilts, dressed in a tunic and positioned on a tall pedestal, each sculpture has a very expressive coloured face with pronounced facial expressions (ange... [more]

In the current presentation of works from the collection, S.M.A.K. has assembled a selection of paintings; not only on the traditional canvas, but also on more unusual supports. These works may offer a moment of calm after the stream of flashing media images and film excerpts in the adjacent exhibition by Johan Grimonprez. This collection presentation is composed like a visual chain, starting with pure colour and moving through abstract paintings to more narrative, figurative works. It closes with... [more]

Appropriately titled, Thomas Schütte’s “Kleine Geister,” “Small Spirits” or “Little Ghost,” at Donald Young Gallery(who recently moved from one of Chicago’s biggest spaces to one of its smallest) surveys small-scale work by one of Germany’s most prominent sculptors. Schütte’s small spirits are the little cousins of his “Grosse Geister” or Big Ghosts, like the group that has haunted the large platform at the entrance of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, since 2004 (more specifica...

        We know Thomas Schütte, the Düsseldorf based artist, from his colourful glass sculpture, ‘Model for a Hotel’, that has occupied the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square (soon to be colonised by Antony Gormley’s constant changing appearance of citizen performers). Schütte is a polymath, with an immensely varied portfolio ranging from iconic figure sculptures to architectural models, ceramics and graphic pieces. His work is at once disturbing, repellent and hugely entertaining. His intern... [more]

Puppets, puppetry and the like are often relegated to being an obscure subgenre of the theater or sometimes of the art world but the exhibition, The Puppet Show, currently on view at the Santa Monica Museum of Art, points out the fact that puppets frequently infiltrate popular culture and bring along with them issues that loom large like agency, control, miniaturization and manipulation. These issues are explored by a wide range of internationally recognized artists who have created work that i... [more]
