Tom Sachs

Skateboard

Tom Sachs was born in 1966 in New York City. He first became known for his meticulous revisions and interpretations of iconic contemporary products of pop culture. The sculptures, drawings and pop readymades of the American artist are constantly ambiguous, often funny at first glance but somehow oppressive on the second. "Skateboard" from 2009 is an object out of a series of fully functioning skateboards which are produced by hand on behalf of the artist and even by Tom Sachs himself. This work again deals with the aesthetic contrast of the of the handmade vs. the perfection of the serially produced in western mass culture.
