Thomas Schütte

Thomas Schutte Frith Street Gallery

An exhibition of sculpture and works on paper by Thomas Schütte at the gallery’s spaces on Golden Square and at 60 Frith Street.

Schütte’s practice is broad ranging, but is particularly immersed in the legacies of minimalism and conceptualism, all while experimenting with shifting forms of figuration. The artist reassesses the figurative traditions of art in his sculptures and drawings, presenting emotionally charged observations of the human condition. His work brings together both romantic visions of the world as well as more dystopian possibilities.

Schütte often works serially. Over the years, he has built a repertoire of motifs, shapes and themes that he revisits, develops and adapts to different dimensions or unexpected materials. This exhibition will demonstrate the breadth of the artist’s practice. A new series
of drawings made especially for the show will occupy the entire gallery space at 60 Frith Street. Schütte’s drawings feed closely into his sculptural works, which are created in a similar spirit; the artist views working from observation as an opposition to a real, physical world that is constantly changing. The gallery at Golden Square will exhibit major sculptural pieces in metal and ceramic, with the basement gallery containing a special installation of Schütte’s works in glass.
