Playing in the Era of the Image

The image of the sea fills the eyes as if it is a blazing fire. Each element, such as a pink sky, a navy sea, an island left as blackened outlines, and clouds of fire-scored shapes, is multicoloured as if all elements have intentionally elevated their contrasting. Tobias Rehberger’s solo exhibition, ‘Truths that would be maddening without love’, has opened at Gallery Baton. Rehberger, who frequently crosses media forms and scales in his work, such as imagery, sculpture, and installation, is an artist who does not forget to ask the conceptual question about ‘art’, while fascinating the eyes of the audience with his unique, sensual and fancy colours. He has been exploring the dichotomous boundaries surrounding the art’s genres and roles, such as sculpture-installation-architecture, art-everyday, and aesthetics-function. This solo exhibition is also an extension of such explorations. According to him, ‘Truth means “concept”, Love means “emotion”’, in the title of the exhibition. He wanted to express the sense that ‘an artwork cannot exist without intelligence and prudence, but a work cannot be made without something unintentional, emotional and loose’. This is also an attempt to rise against the attitude that trusted rationality blindly and neglected emotion in the context of the history of intelligence.
