Thomas Houseago

'Moun Room' is comprised of three chambers contained within one another. The spaces Houseago has conceived with 'Moun Room' – extending both within and outside the structure's physical walls – invite meditation upon movement and codes of behavior in response to architecture. The artist has described this work as 'a visual maze with a spiritual dimension" 

Hauser & Wirth is pleased to present 'Thomas Houseago. Moun Room', an immersive environment that represents a departure for the artist. Houseago is most widely identified with monumental sculptures of the human body, figures admired for their brute physicality and potent tactility. Drawing upon and deftly subverting classical sources, the artist creates forms that hover between power and vulnerability, old and new worlds.
