Brad Pitt has made his debut as a sculptor, in a group show at the Sara Hildén Art Museum in Tampere, Finland. The A-List actor’s artworks appear alongside those by the musician Nick Cave and the artist Thomas Houseago for the exhibition “We,” on view until January 15, 2023.
Among the nine works by Pitt on show are a house-shaped structure molded in clear silicon and shot with bullets, and his first ever sculpture, from 2017, “House A Go Go”: an 18-inch miniature house made out of tree bark, crudely held together with tape.

The largest pieces include a coffin-sized bronze box depicting hands, feet and faces attempting to break through the structure at various angles, and the plaster wall-hanging sculpture “Aiming At You I Saw Me But It Was Too Late This Time,” from 2020, which depicts a gun fight between eight figures.
