From Nutella and Penaten cream, through hygiene products, to a discarded caravan or old refrigerators—products of industrial mass production form the basis for Thomas Rentmeister’s sculptural works. His body-related, minimalist sculptures and installations combine the aesthetic and the repulsive in an incongruous way. With this, as well as the use of often absurdly large volumes of material, he playfully articulates a—partly humorous—social commentary that provides visual, as well as thematic, cause to think anew about the things that surround us in everyday life.

This catalogue offers a good overview of his work, including new works created since the last major publication in 2011. The texts by Anna Mosemann and Hendrik Bündge, as well as an interview with the artist, open up new perspectives on Rentmeister’s work.

THOMAS RENTMEISTER (*1964) works in the fields of sculpture and installation. He has been a professor at the HBK Braunschweig since 2007. His works are represented in numerous collections and have been exhibited worldwide, including at Hamburger Bahnhof, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Kunsthalle Nürnberg, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, and Perth Institute of Contemporary Art.
