“Meuser, Strubbel die Katz” at the Galerie Nathalie Obadia, Brussels.
For his first solo exhibition, german artist Meuser presents a series of works created using objects collected from landfill sites.
Items which he recycles into sculptures rooted in his childhood in a working-class district of Essen, the bastion of the all-powerful steel-manufacturing industry of West Germany. Behind their abstract forms, the artists works are of autobiographical – but also social and collective – reality. The pieces of metal, whose past functionality we deduce but cannot identify, are remnants of our material culture, and symbols of the mechanization of production and widespread consumerism.
9th of september to the 24th of october.
