Brad Pitt unveils nine sculptures at the Finnish Museum of Art

“It came from owning what I call a radical inventory of the self,” said the Academy Award-winning sculptor-turned-sculptor.

After becoming an Oscar winner in 2021, Brad Pitt has launched three new careers: amateur treasure hunter, leader of The Great Pottery Throw Down fan club, and now professional sculptor.

The ‘Bullet Train’ star unveiled nine sculptures at a Finnish art museum, the Sara Hildén Art Museum, as part of a larger exhibition by British artist Thomas Houseago and a ceramics series by Australian musician Nick Cave. It’s worth noting that Pitt’s longtime collaborator, director Andrew Dominik, has directed two Cave documentaries.

“This is a new world for Nick and me and our first entry. It just feels right,” Pitt told Finnish broadcaster Yle at the opening ceremony (via The Independent).

Pitt, described as a “largely self-taught” artist, said his pieces are part of his emotional rebirth.

“For me, it’s about self-reflection,” Pitt mused. “It’s about where I’ve gone wrong in my relationships, where I’ve made a mistake, where I’m complicit. For me, it came from owning what I call a radical inventory of self, to be really brutally honest with myself and to consider those I may have hurt, moments when I’m just plain wrong.”

Pitt’s works include a sculpted plasterboard entitled “Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wound to the House” made from crystallized bullets in platinum silicone. Another sculptor called “Candle Holders For Loved Ones” was “made in the time of COVID”. A bronze box with hands, feet and faces is titled Aiming At You I Saw Me But It Was Too Late This Time.

Pitt previously voiced his fandom for UK reality series The Great Pottery Throw Down and shared his latest artistic work. “I’ve seen every season,” Pitt confirmed, adding that the show was “so beautiful.”

According to an official synopsis (for those who don’t know about the kiln-centric series), The Great Pottery Throw Down centers around 10 home potters from across the country venturing into Stoke-on-Trent, the home of Pottery, in their quest to become the Top Potter.

The official exhibition site retweeted the Bullet Train interview, headlined “The first rule of the pottery club is you *must* talk about pottery,” nodded to Fight Club.
