Tobias Kaspar, born in 1984 in Basel, lives in Riga and Zurich.
Tobias Kaspar’s practice raises questions about how to behave in today’s mainstream society; how, when and under what circumstances, one can curve out a space of one’s own, and thus question this very ambition in itself. Kaspar work exemplifies a strategy that uses appearance in different economies to reflect and question the artist’s own position and the position we are in at large. Through
juxtaposition it offers insights into how different systems of value production function. Kaspar’s practice is informed by an interest in how object, image, text, form and content relate to eachother. Tobias Kaspar’s artworks are an ongoing investigation of the semantic connotations of images and objects. Fabric and garments are returning motifs along with issues concerning identity building and so-called ‘subjectivity’ in our society.
