Wong Ping: Hong Kong Fables Ocula Conversation Wong Ping: Hong Kong Fables

Or their dark narratives that resonate with the deepest recesses of the human psyche? They have been included in an impressive repertoire of group exhibitions in recent years, including One Hand Clapping at...

Tobias Rehberger

b. 1966, Germany

Tobias Rehberger is one of the most important German artists of his generation. His futuristic installations that command light, space, furniture and graphics create interactive environments for viewers. His work plays of unexpected encounters and teases out possibilities for social, even utopian, development. Stripes cover walls in the manner of hazard signs yet the the effect is more energising that halting. The gaps between communication and understanding are explored, and his works have been cited as giving 'a reason to slow down and reacquaint ourselves with a once common sight... and contemplate what else we have left behind'.

Rirkrit Tiravanija and Tobias Rehberger at STPI, Singapore Ocula Insight Rirkrit Tiravanija and Tobias Rehberger at STPI, Singapore By Elliat Albrecht

Inside is the butchery, a tiled black and white jagged-stripy Delicatessen counter with a generous array of cold cuts and jellied offal (Blackbird's Rockbund Art Museum Butcher Shop,...
