Tobias Rehberger presents 'Sex and Friends'






The Pilar Corrias Gallery in London is excited to present a new collection of work by the German process artist Tobias Rehberger. The critically acclaimed artist creates installations and sculptures which have a pop-art graphic sensibility, blurring the boundaries between art-spatial design-architecture.

Working with industrial processes and materials, Tobias deals with the concept of transformation, but is openly vague about his rationale:

"I think that looking at my work, there is linearity to be found, but instead themes around which my work revolved, appearing in different lights. How can the things around us be interpretated? Is it truly possible 'to see' a work in its entirety, or does the work instead, include something more? Much of my work is based on things which cannot be seen"
-Tobas Rehberger

Following his solo show at Museum Dhont-Dhaenens, Belgium (see the below video), Tobias is showing a series of shadow sculptures, which cast words across the gallery space. At regular but brief times of the day, the morphing shadows come together to form a message, a rare and passing moment within the exhibition.

Most known for being rewarded with a Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in 2009, Tobias collaborated with Gallerie illy to recreate his trademark optical pop art designs onto coffee cups.



Tobias Rehberger is open at the Pilar Corrias Gallery until 17 February 2012
