Max Frisinger Germany, b. 1980

Overview

Max Frisinger re-invents found objects and ready-made which symbolize the demise of industrial-age utopianism and turns them into works of art with his authentic aesthetics. He maintains the figurative features of the objects yet revives the inherent beauty existing in industrial products which have lost their functional worth, and discovers new value in them. Discarded old cast iron radiators are transformed into sculptures reminiscent of the human anatomy and debris of everyday objects assembled in vitrines become works of art.

In reference to art history of three-dimensional forms or painterly expressions, he makes uses of everyday objects and materials into the artwork by re-contextualizing. Paying careful attention to the society of excess and waste, his work opens up a discourse on the boundaries of art, banality and expendability.

Max Frisinger’s work is represented in the collections of Saatchi collection in the UK, Takashi Murakami collection in Japan, the Speyer Family in the USA, and Schaulager Basel in Switzerland.
