Thorsten Brinkmann


This short documentary follows German artist Thorsten Brinkmann as he creates his site-specific installation, The Great Cape Rinderhorn, at Rice University Art Gallery. Working primarily from objects found in Houston, Brinkmann turns Rice Gallery into a place where the familiar is made strange as castaway goods are reimagined through Brinkmann’s idiosyncratic sensibility that combines assemblage sculptures with his self-portrait and still life photography. On view at Rice Gallery February 4 - May 15, 2016. Commissioned by RiceGallery.org. Original score by Mark Walley. Learn more about the artist at ThorstenBrinkmann.com.
