Brad Pitt exhibited his sculptures for the first time, thus revealing that, in addition to being a Hollywood star, he also has a flair for the fine arts.
He did this as part of a group show called We, along with Australian rocker Nick Cave and the artist Thomas Houseago. The pieces will be exhibited at the Sara Hildén Art Museum in Tampere (Finland) until January 15.
Brad Pitt’s sculptures
The protagonist of “Legends of the fall” (Legends of passion) presented nine works. The first, “House a go go”created it in 2017. It is a house made of tree bark, 46 centimeters high, whose parts were joined with adhesive tape.
Another piece, this time large, seems to be inspired by the scene of Han Solo (Harrison Ford) freezing in carbonite in the movie “Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back”.
It is a bronze box from which faces, hands and feet stand out. According to Brad Pitt, it represents a coffin with buried needs that are looking for a way out from somewhere and somehow.
Finally, another work that draws attention is “Aiming at you I saw me but it was too late this time” (Aiming at you, I saw myself, but it was too late), from 2020.
It is a plaster sculpture hanging on the wall that represents a shootout between eight figures.
What did Brad Pitt say about his sculptures?
“This is a new world and our first time. It feels good”, Brad Pitt declared to the media during the opening of the exhibition. At another time, he explained to the Finnish portal Yle that his work is a self-reflection on the failure of his relationships, such as his divorce from Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie.
“I’ve taken a radical inventory of myself and thought about where I’ve hurt others and times that have gone wrong,” he said.
