  • About the Documentary

    On the second floor of Tobias Rehberger’s exhibition displays a group portrait vases, a series of works the artist has created since the 1990s. The 50 uniquely flower-adorned sculptures present the aesthetic quirks of artists and friends associated with the artist as well as an exploration of collective memory. Rirkrit Tiravanija, one of the artists included, filmed a documentary named Chew The Fat to present a group portrait in the form of video recordings. The film shows free-flowing dialogue between him and six contemporary artists: he had a drink with Philippe Parreno in Paris, observed Carsten Höller’s birdcage in Stockholm, strolled with Andrea Zittel in the desert of California, checked the mail with Liam Gillick, visited Jorge Pardo’s studio in California, and traveled through Germany by train with Tobias Rehberger.

    Despite the fact that these artists create their own works with different aesthetic methods, they cannot be simply classified as a group; but from the ideological perspective, their different practices show a common rethinking, a reexamination of the desire to integrate art and life. The artists try to nurture a dynamic way of viewing by creating works that can absorb, extend and challenge the practice of art galleries.
