Info

With its sweeping, supporting fields of colour, Rehberger’s Echtwald Tent (2009) has the appearance of a folded, deconstructivist reprise of his incisive homage to the Swedish constructivist painter Olle Baertling’s Summer (1999) – a 13m purple curtain. Rehberger’s tent includes signal colours and camouflage hues. One look suffices – though the tent is certainly worthy of more that a passing glance– to reveal that every angle of view both from the outside and the inside will be an unforgettable experience. As a mobile meeting-space, the ECHTWALD tent is also a metaphor for ECHTWALD’s diversity.

About the artist

Born in 1966 in Esslingen am Neckar, lives and works in Frankfurt am Main and Berlin

Rehberger reflects upon structures and relationships in which art is created. Many of his works are situated at the interstices of art and design. Between the autonomous realm of the artwork and the field of applied design, he showcases light, space, furniture, and fashion, engaging with the themes of art’s functionality, practical value, and authorship in installations that are outgoing, interactive, open-ended, and playful. He was awarded the Golden Lion at the 2009 Venice Biennale for his pop-art cafeteria titled What you love also makes you cry.
