Thorsten Brinkmann

Life is funny, my deer

German artist Thorsten Brinkmann (b. Herne, 1971) has an unstoppable urge to collect. The self-proclaimed ‘serial collector’ (Serialsammler) gathers all kinds of objects that have been discarded by others and takes them back to his studio in Hamburg. There, he recycles and redefines them in artworks, the origin and purpose of the material now all but irrelevant. The exhibition will feature more than 60 works whose common them is the mismatch between our bodies and the objects around us.
