Max Hooper Schneider’s world out of order

Working heavily in the assemblage and animatronic genres of art making, Max Hooper Schneider has jumped into the art world of the elite over the last few years with his innovative and eerie sculptures, even cracking himself into a Gagosian show. Schneider’s work revolves around an idea that functions as an aesthetic as well as a philosophic aspect of his work and he takes things that the human race has “overpowered” in its evolutional dominion of the planet, and gives them out-of-this-world, and oftentimes unrecognizable qualities that lead to wonder on our part. These art acts by Max Hooper Schneider have ranged from coating a boulder in a glowing resin that will shine for centuries, rearranging a beluga whale’s glowing bones to create something of alien nature indeed, and creating terrariums full of insect parts, overgrowth, and neon tubing. All of these works of art play with almost post-apocalyptic themes. These pieces pose a question to mankind’s dominance by assigning supernatural qualities to inanimate, “lesser” objects that are otherwise quite familiar and sometimes detestable.
