Tom Sachs

Feb 22, 2013


Tom Sachs’s works are, so to say, “handmade readymades”. A mixture of “symbols” such as sacredness and secularity, and fancy and violent things shown in works of a toilet bowl with Prada logos, a McDonald’s value meal in Hermes wrapping paper, and Hello Kitty sitting neatly as the Virgin Mary or bambino (Jesus as a boy) in presepio (Nativity Scene) attract us with the intentional naive detail. ‘Store’ showcased in this exhibition is the trunk that contains Tom Sachs’s recent edition works. Plus, there is also one video work from 2011 and three sculptural works from 2012 on view along with his recent sculptures, products and catalogues, including ‘Kelly Bag’ and ‘American Tool Kit.’
