About the artist

Tom Sachs

Tom Sachs, born in 1966, is an American contemporary artist and sculptor known for his transformations of iconic objects and brands from capitalist and consumer culture using a variety of materials. 

Building his own functioning versions of material goods, Sachs critiques our materialistic society and the incessant replacing of consumer commodities. After receiving his B.A. from Bennington College, Sachs studied architecture at London’s Architectural Association School of Architecture. He then spent three years in Frank Gehry’s L.A. furniture shop. These experiences informed his artistic production and career, which began to take off in the mid 1990s with a solo show centered around the conflation of fashion and violence. One of Sachs’ most famous works came in 2007 during an exhibition titled “Space Program.” Recreating a life-size replica of the Apollo Lunar Excursion Module using plywood and steel, it was a culmination of his fascination with space, specifically with the Apollo program of the 60s and 70s. This exploration into the boundaries of interplanetary travel and human capabilities continued into 2021, when his exhibition “Space Program: Rare Earths” opened in Hamburg’s Deichtorhallen. His latest exhibition might be his most ambitious, the immersive halls filled with video, sculpture, and aeronautics. 

His work is held in the permanent collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Goetz Collection in Munich, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, among others. He continues to live and work in New York, NY.
