Thorsten Brinkmann - The Great Cape Rinderhorn
Thorsten Brinkmann (1971, Germany) calls himself a serial collector. In the storeroom at his studio can be found the most varied objects discovered on flea markets, in thrift shops, and on the street. Part of middle-class domestic culture, he uses them to show how we relate to the objects that surround us. Objects define our identity and inform our culture. We shape and design the objects that surround us and in turn they shape us and the lives we live. The book's title is a word-play referring to a monumental bull’s horn, to a cape (a sleeveless garment) and Cape Horn at the southernmost extremity of Chile. Apart from a lighthouse, a house and a chapel, Cape Horn is a barren landscape. Published by Art Paper Editions (Ghent).
