Description

Tobias Spichtig’s work is based on a discourse concerning images and their meaning—more specifically, the overwhelming presence of the media and the continuous availability of information, which contribute to the dissolution of time. His approach is based on material production. Concept and narration are abstracted and continually redefined. This creates symbolic works that present historical and contemporary as the bases of a radical presence.

The artist book by Tobias Spichtig consists of two parts: a text booklet and an image book. The booklet features an essay by Fabian Schöneich, a dialogue between Ken Lum and Tobias Spichtig, and texts by Geoffrey Farmer and A. C. Kupper.

The image book highlights the phenomena of perception focusing on the tools build to capture moments and memories. Spichtig gathered hundreds of images of cameras from auction sites, a selection of which are presented in this book. These tools to catch reality are photographed in a way as to not re-present the aim of these products, originally build to show more then we are able to see.

Blue, Red, and Green is published on the occasion of the exhibition at Ursula Blickle Stiftung, “the blue, the red, the green, the cuboid, and the pyramid,” from March 11 to April 22, 2012.
