Sculptures pour amoureux
May 7, 2022–April 24, 2023
Centre Pompidou-Metz, France
For this exhibition, whose title translates to Sculptures for Lovers, Thomas Houseago has designed two installations specifically for the museum, which will be shown in two stages. In the first, three monumental unstretched paintings hung from the ceiling aim to express the restorative power of art and its visceral relationship with life. Visitors are invited to walk freely among the works, which are in dialogue with both nature and the architecture of the building, to view them from different vantage points. For the second phase of the exhibition, the artist adds in new paintings and sculptures created in the South of France.
