  • Catalogue Essay

    Thomas Helbig, when referring to his work, talks about it
    occupying a parallel universe. As the would-be narrator of a dark
    and dreamy fairy tale, he understands his paintings as windows
    into a mythological world and his sculptures as its inhabitants.
    Catalysed by chance, the Berlin-based artist works with old
    materials such as decoration figures, wood and construction
    foam found at random in places such as flea markets, forests
    or bins. In a process of deconstruction and reassembly, Helbig
    then transforms the existing objects into disturbing shapes that
    resemble uncanny bodies and creatures.
