For Trasher Island Thorsten Brinkmann has developed numerous new works, which were presented at the Herbert-Gerisch-Foundation. His first bronze sculpture was displayed, as well as new photo assemblages in which he combines photographs with his found objects. With this technique he left the two-dimensional space of photography. On some horizons "Islands" can perhaps be assumed, or is it just worthless trash? One man's trash is another man's treasure? On one hand, Trasher Island alludes to the material accumulations of found objects in his studio and on the other hand to the Scottish literary classic by Robert Louis Stevenson.Thorsten Brinkmann does not dig for a treasure of real gold and silver like the protagonists of the novel, but for new meanings and evaluations of the supposedly worthless.
