thomas grünfeld: 'the misfits'

"his pieces are always ambiguous, or rather hybrid. they provoke in the viewer attraction and uneasiness and cause deep questioning on the nature of art, on the statute of artistic objects in general."  produced from the tradition of the hunt trophies as well of the 18th century 'cabinets d’amateurs'.  absurd and disconcerting, grünfeld’s universe disturbs us as much by what is shown as by what it suggests.
