It’s a compelling event in Paris. The Monnaie de Paris holds, from March 15 to June 16, 2019, the first Parisian retrospective of German artist and sculptor Thomas Schütte. This retrospective will take place in the Monnaie de Paris courtyards as well in the indoor areas.
Since the 80’s, Thomas Schütte appears as one of the main reinventors of sculpture, but today, he’s a major and unclassifiable artist. As a matter of fact, the German artist uses many materials to express himself, such as sculpture, installation, photography, painting and even drawing. Always with a strong attraction to portrait, still life and landscape.
Consequently, the exhibition called “Trois Actes” [Three Acts] will evolve as its name suggests it, in three acts that are as follow: Women, Men and Architecture. The line of vision being the analysis of the organization of the society and its effect on people. Schütte himself says: “My works aim to introducing a twisted question mark on everyone”.
So if you’re not familiar with Thomas Schütte’s work, this retrospective has to be on your planners 2019!
