New York artist Alex Schweder’s The Third Thing, premiering at Galerie Barbara Thumm on January 15, 2022, will pour sensuality and sound into January’s dreary middle.

Describing the experience of this inflatable installation as an effervescent cocktail of mirror, fur and milk – Schweder hints that a taste for his work is not acquired in polite society. Swelling and sagging, animated by the fill and empty of air, Schweder’s installation pursues his recent discovery that the inflatable architecture he has made for over a decade can be newly approached as sound producing instruments. Opening this possibility wider, Schweder has commissioned an eclectic group of sound artists to form an unlikely ensemble.
