Andersen's Contemporary, Copenhagen, Denmark
Max Wigram Gallery, London, UK
FOS (born Thomas Poulsen) creates a variety of works, from installations to works on paper, that coalesce around his interest in examining how interactions and perceptions are shaped by specific contexts. His works are interventions that exemplify the artist’s idea of “social design,” an artistic framework in which social interaction and communal public experiences are his materials. For example, FOS’s Osloo (2011), an immersive public sculpture outfitted with a bar, stage, and radio station, is activated and fully realized through its use by visitors.
His work has been exhibited at Athens Biennale, Camden Arts Centre in London, Venice Biennale, National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen, and Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Arts in Copenhagen,among many others.
