Thomas Hirschorn

Thomas Hirschorn is a conceptual artist who builds familiar yet disjuncted spaces, with a lot of brown packing tape and plywood.

Universal Gym at Gladstone Gallery featuring makeshift gym equipment, tvs showing pulse rates and biological rhythms, and the usual mannequins in vitrines.

Much more relatable than the last show of Hirschorn at Galerie Chantal Crousel called Concretion Re, some kind of narration on the body, manipulation and mutilation, disease, and torture. Concretion Re involved heavy amount of photos of mutilated bodies surrounding them mutilated mannequins, and ducttape the glue that held the ceiling and floor together.
