THOMAS HIRSCHHORN

Thomas Hirschhorn (b. 1957, Bern, Switzerland) is known for his installations that transform the traditional gallery space into meditative environments that tackle issues of critical theory, global politics and consumerism. Combining found imagery and texts that are bound up with low-tech constructions of cardboard, foil and packaging tape, he confronts the issue of moral responsibility using basic everyday materials. He uses collage as a means to create a new world with already existing elements in an attempt to resist consumption even further. Linda Pace collected multiple artworks by Hirschhorn that remain in the permanent collection today.
