Thorsten Brinkmann - The Great Cape Rinderhorn
Exhibition, Rice University Gallery, Houston, USA.
Working primarily from objects found in Houston, Thorsten Brinkmann turns Rice Gallery into a place where the familiar is made alien as he reimagines castaway goods through his idiosyncratic sensibility, forming assemblages combined with selfportrait and still life photography. A selfproclaimed serialsammler (serial collector), Brinkmann gathers whatever catches his eye as he sifts through goods that are broken and discarded or through the functional items filling thrift store shelves. For this exhibition, he has created a new installation that grows organically out of itself in response to the space and the things he has found.
