A bunch of bruised bananas placed above a worn-out helicopter, an antique arena juxtaposed to a beetroot, a statue of a headless horseman and a head of a donkey placed on the same wall, four round chandeliers next to two oranges. Logic is certainly not the prevailing factor when German artist Thomas Florschuetz creates his exhibition installations. How the artist organizes his large sized photographs next to each other is rather determined by visual relationships and aesthetic associations. Still, there is a leitmotif in all his works: architecture.
Sharpness, blurredness, reflections and fragmentations are just some of the alienating photo effects used by Thomas Florschuetz in his extraordinary artistic career. Florschuetz was born in 1957 in the East German city of Zwickau, grew up in Karl-Marx Stadt where he developed his artistic talents without any formal training. Since the early 1980s he has lived in Berlin and over the years received several prizes for his art. His work is represented in numerous collections both public and private.
Imperfekt in Museet for Fotokunst is Thomas Florschuetz´s first big solo exhibition in a Danish Museum.
