Thomas Mailaender

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

French multimedia artist, Thomas Mailaender creates work that is fun and funny. He orchestrates strangeness and documents it in what he describes as “insignificant, incidentally grotesque moments that possess an abrupt and unexpected monumentality.” Like Cathedral Cars, the beyond ridiculous, sculpturally over-laden vehicles, portraits with really big things (pictured, Items) and a performance piece in which he deposited an “ultrarealistic” and massive mussel shell on a beach then notified the local papers. Nice-Matin lead with: “A polyester monster: one mussel that will be hard to swallow.”
