Tomás Saraceno

“Nine Cloud Modules 30”. Beech wood and adhesive sculpture, composed of nine modules.

Argentinean artist Tomás Saraceno (b. 1973) studied art and architecture in Buenos Aires, Frankfurt am Main, and Venice. In 2005 he established his studio in Frankfurt am Main. His multidisciplinary artistic practice takes inspiration from a variety of sources ranging from architecture and space exploration to science fiction and geometries found in the biological sciences.

Creating inflatable and airborne biospheres with the morphology of soap bubbles, spider webs, neural networks or cloud formations, Saraceno presents us with speculative models for alternate ways of living for a sustainable future. An artist trained as an architect, he deploys insights from engineering, physics, chemistry, aeronautics and materials science in his work.

Saraceno’s work has been widely exhibited internationally in solo and group exhibitions such as the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, and is included in the collections of Bauhaus Museum, Weimar; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; SFMOMA, San Francisco; Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Berlin; among others.
