For his first major solo show in London in many years, Thomas Hirschhorn presents a new work entitled In-Between.

About

Based on and highlighting the quote; “Destruction is difficult. It is as difficult as creation.” by Italian Marxist theorist and politician, Antonio Gramsci, this new artwork continues the artist’s exploration of ruins in recent works. He states: "The aesthetic of In-Between borrows from pictures of destruction-destruction by violence, by war, by accident, by nature, by structural failures, by corruption, by fatality. I want to establish a body of work which encompasses Antonio Gramsci's quote. Without being anecdotic or literal, I can testify that to set-up a work in an exhibition space which gives form to destruction is indeed as difficult as anything else. With In-Between I want to create a new form, I want to propose an experience, an art-experience in the range of 'successes', failures and in-betweens.” 

The exhibition is generously supported by Stephen Friedman Gallery, Beth Rudin DeWoody and the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
