ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Thomas Rentmeister, born in 1964 in Reken, is a German artist currently residing in Berlin, renowned for his objects, sculptures, and site-specific installations. Boldly tinkering with some of the Dadaist ideas of an artwork, he has been incorporating everyday objects and situations into his art since the very beginning; just to mention some installations made of mirrors and toothpaste (from 2000), or the equally innovative and ironic use of nougat and chocolate spread (i.e. "Nutella", 2001). On the other hand, his repertoire can be also calm and reduced, as in a series of polyester resin sculptures produced through the 90s. His artistic prominence began during his education years at the Academy of Fine Arts in Düsseldorf (1984-5, 1987-93), when he was honored with a Philip Morris scholarship (1988-9) and held the first one-man show at the Vincenz Sala Gallery in Berlin (1989). Since then, the artist has exhibited at the major art institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art in Frankfurt am Main (2004), Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam (2005), KW Institut in Berlin (2007), and the Centraal Museum in Utrecht (2008), among others.
