Actor Brad Pitt is holding his first-ever public art exhibition, unveiling a number of his sculptures at an art museum in Finland's third-largest city, Tampere.

The city's lakeside Sara Hilden Art Museum is showing the "largely self-taught" artist's sculptures and said the works were revealed by the actor himself over the weekend.

Pitt's works were shown as part of a larger exhibition by Thomas Houseago, a British artist. The exhibition also featured a series by Australian artist and rock star Nick Cave.

Pitt, who has drawn the most attention with his name recognition, featured a moulded plaster panel that depicts "a gunfight," along with a series of silicone sculptures shaped like houses that had been shot with different ammunition gauges.

As 58-year-old Pitt introduced the pieces he said, "To me it's about self-reflection. It's about where I have gotten it wrong in my relationships, where have I misstepped."
