The World on Coat Hook
Starting January 31, 2014, the Museum DKM will be showing sculptural works by Mönchengladbach-based artist Thomas Virnich (born 1957 in Eschweiler). The exhibition brings together works from three decades, including assemblage-like sculptures made of precision-fit individual parts, monumental book objects, architectural models out of papier-mâché and sculptures rooted in the playful use of found objects. Seen together, these works give an overview of the main themes, materials and techniques that characterize this distinctive artist. Works from the Museum DKM have been supplemented with loans from Galerie Reckermann, from private collections and from the collection of Thomas Virnich.
