Critically engaging with the workings of entertainment and commercialised experiences, Gerrit Frohne-Brinkmann seeks the intersection between early cultural forms and today’s popular performance formats. Fuelled by his interest in natural sciences, the artist uses fossiles, fake mummies or younger but already outdated technology to question our notion and relation to history, time, and the present. Comprising large-scale installations, performances, series of ceramic objects, the usage of odour and prints and drawings, among other forms, Frohne-Brinkmann’s practice is broad in its use of techniques and media. Pervading all the works is a humorous, detailed link of prehistoric and current contexts and cultures.
