The teeth shine. The nuclear power plant dances. The shell shows its treasure. The canister becomes human. The cow’s udder is bulging. Globe flies, the skipping weed too. Homage is paid to the logos. Corona screams. The fossil club threatens.
“Something ironic and slightly absurd resonates there – a special form of wit or poetic humor is inherent in his work, which makes things – even if they weigh heavily – light and thus easier to grasp. Not the moral reproach, but rather the unexpected image, the oblique idea lie in Tom Albrecht’s artistic calculation.” Dr. Peter Funken, 2021.
Tom Albrecht founded Group Global 3000 in 2012 as a project space with a gallery and has curated 53 exhibitions with the team since then.
