The Goldilocks Zone
October 18–November 22, 2008
Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are pleased to present ‘The Goldilocks Zone’ by Thomas Scheibitz as the inaugural exhibition at the gallery’s new space in Berlin.
Thomas Scheibitz’s work addresses the relationship between painting and sculpture. With no ‘prima maniera’, he elaborates art-historical references, popular everyday phenomena and scientific findings using a reduced index of basic forms gathered from the known world – both within and beyond the scope of visual perception. Abstract thinking is thereby confronted with the intuitive logic and recognizable similarities of the various forms and objects.
In this exhibition Thomas Scheibitz has devoted himself exclusively to sculpture and the sculptural surface. A configuration of around thirty objects marks out the exhibition space in a field-like arrangement and shows possible areas of interaction between the autonomous sculpture, its arrangement in space and concepts such as scale and proportion.
