Overview

German artist Thomas Schutte makes sculpture which varies from giant, candy-coloured cherries to miniaturized castles. He manipulates size and materials like a master juggler, inventing familiar yet uncanny scenarios. Like Gulliver we wander through his bizarre worlds of shifting scale, a universe replete with food and shelter vet full of false promise: a museum that incinerates art; bronze potatoes; or his very own 'audience', made up of metal-clad robots assembled before his work. Schutte has also constructed a series of architectural models of institutions and monuments; their eclectic array of building typologies suggests de Chirico-like metaphysical spaces.
