Thomas Rentmeister: "NORMALTAG" - Städtische Galerie Wolfsburg

Thomas Rentmeister's work integrates legendary forms of consumer goods as well as everyday objects und practices into the genesis of his work. The exhibition deals with the artist's humorous understanding of everyday occurrences. This irritates our perception shaped by habit. Even tough objects and materials that have been removed from their context imply an interest in routine problems, simultaneously, distinctive elements of daily life are transformed into a surreal perception and presented in an entirely new manner.

Due to its position in-between Pop-art and sculpture, Rentmeister's work develops an ambivalent relationship to its environment especially well in a public and museum space. Thomas Rentmeister (*1964 in Reken) holds a professorship for sculpture at the HBK Braunschweig since 2009.

Opening: 27th October 2012, 6 pm.
Exhibition: 27th October 2012 - 24th February 2013
