Hollywood star Brad Pitt has unveiled sculptures he created at a museum in Finland. It is the first time that the US actor is showing his works to the public, the Sara Hilden Art Museum in Tampere in south-west Finland said yesterday.

The sculptures are part of a larger exhibition by British artist Thomas Houseago, which also features a series of ceramics by Australian musician Nick Cave.

It’s a new world for Cave and him, Pitt said at the opening ceremony. “It just feels right.” The 58-year-old Hollywood star’s visit was unexpected as his attendance was not previously announced.

Pitt: “It’s about self-reflection”

Among Pitt’s artworks are a plasterboard meant to depict a gunfight and a series of house-shaped silicone sculptures, each shot with a different type of ammunition. “For me, it’s about self-reflection,” Pitt said. “It’s about where I’ve gone wrong in my relationships, where I’ve made a misstep.”
