Tobias Rehberger creates objects, sculptures and environments as diverse as they are prolific. Drawing on a repertoire of quotidian objects appropriated from everyday mass-culture, Rehberger translates, alters and expands ordinary situations and objects with which we are familiar. At once utilitarian, ambient and perceptually powerful, Rehberger’s objects and environments mimic the glossy perfection of the manufactured yet idiosyncrasies in terms of their colour, size, function and location demand new rules of engagement on behalf of the beholder.

In a mesmerising installation at the Venice Biennale of 2003, Rehberger created a canopy of glass lamps activated by triggers located in seven different locations around the globe including a pumpkin field in the Walachi region in Romania, and a derelict Burger King in Kyoto. Emerging from ordinary conditions that have been radically altered, Rehberger’s proposals are interdependent upon the viewer. As such they exist as potent instruments for examining the relationship between objects and situations, and our shifting sensibilities as individual subjects.

Tobias Rehberger was born in 1966 in Esslingen, Germany. As one of the most prominent artists of his generation, Rehberger has attracted widespread international acclaim.
