Don’t miss Gagosian Gallery’s latest exhibition from the influential sculptor Robert Therrien, whose work can be found at MoMa, Tate and the Pompidou Centre.
Robert Therrien Under the Table
Therrien is best known for his giant sculptures of every day objects and you may know the acclaimed work, Under the Table (1994) - a gargantuan table and chairs made to such a scale that the view can wander underneath.
Robert Therrien artist and technique
LA based Therrien began his career making reliefs that veer between sculpture and painting, working with basic forms before extending his practice to include paintings, drawings and sculpture. Although deceptively simple, Therrien’s objects are actually very complex, combining an interest in the experiences of childhood and how minimal art relates to the real world.
Gagosian Gallery exhibition
In the Gagosian show, Therrien plays with three recurring motifs – stacked pots and pans, double-hung "Dutch" doors, and oval serving trays. Together these domestic objects redefine the possibilities of the readymade and transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.
