Thomas HIRSCHHORN

Known for his constructions produced from disposable mass-manufactured goods, Thomas Hirschhorn brings together references and images drawn from popular media with the work of radical theorists such as Gilles Deleuze and Georges Bataille. Most of Thomas Hirschhorn's works play with familiar, urban forms reminiscent of the stall, the flea market, the pamphlet, or its placarded form like the Chinese dazibao. Involved in Hirschhorn's work, viewers are forced to consume and reflect on what they may have hitherto ignored in their daily lives. The disparity between the viewer and the bombardment of enlarged images reminds us how distant and distant we can feel in the face of such images.
