Tobias Rehberger Germany, b. 1966


Tobias Rehberger has achieved his unique cross-disciplinary aesthetic whose broad range embraces images, objects, installations and collaborations. Crossing  dichotomous boundaries or hierarchies which revolve around dynamics of diverse genres and roles such as sculpture/installation/architecture, fine art/design, art/daily life and aesthetic/function, he also explores ‘in-between’ realms among those different fields consistently. At solo exhibition at Gallery Baton in 2020, Tobias Rehberger reveals his large-scale installation project which drastically intervenes in and makes a full use of gallery’s original inner structure. The exhibition consists of three spaces occupied by images, objects and installations. The Five massive walls covered with images, along the advised route of the exhibition. The monotonous ambience of his ordinary photographic images makes a sharp contrast to the images’ excessively enlarged sizes, and this spectacle and spontaneous approach of Rehberger suggests what visual experiences mean in ‘the Age of the Image’.


Tobias Rehberger lives and works in Frankfurt, Germany and has been a professor of Fine Arts at the Frankfurt Städelschule since 2001. Along with the award-winning of the Venice Biennale’s Golden Lion in 2009, Rehberger has involved numerous European and international solo exhibitions such as those at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2008); Fondazione Prada, Milan (2007); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid (2005); Whitechapel Gallery, London (2004); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2002) as well as a recent exhibition at Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai (2019). He was also introduced in Korea at Museum of Contemporary Art, Busan (2018); Gwangju Biennale, Gwangju (2012); Black Box Lounge at Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul (2012) and Art Sonje Center, Seoul (2004).
