Thomas Houseago

The mess I'm looking for

1 September - 20 October 2012


Hauser & Wirth is proud to present 'The mess I’m looking for', an exhibition of works by Thomas Houseago. 'The mess I'm looking for' will act as the third part in a trilogy of exhibitions comprising Houseago's debut show with the gallery, with 'I'll be your sister' and 'Special Brew', opening at Hauser & Wirth London, Savile Row on 7 September. For his first solo show in Switzerland, Houseago will present a new, large-scale figure and a selection of wall works, including reliefs and masks. Together, these works showcase Houseago's vast range of influences, from the abundance of nature and the sculpture of non-Western art to the superheroes and villains of comic books and cartoons. Houseago's interpretation of these subjects highlights his sensitivity both to the art of the Renaissance and the masters of Modernism, as well as his own innovative approach to figurative sculpture.
