The Farmer as a spectator.

The fact that the increased attention to space does not emerge from a purely academic discussion, but from fundamental changes in our environment explains the continuing and vast interest in spaces. The term „cyberspace“ which comes from science fiction literature (William Gibson) has also become a general reality.

For Tobias Tavella it is this intersubjective reality, the one that is relevant to the community, that is the value in itself at the centre of his work. His art is about a general examination of reality and space gain. Tobias Tavella has a double interest in space. On the one hand, there is the question of space philosophy and thus of limitation and opening, on the other hand there is also the spatial conditions for art itself, around its places such as studios and exhibition spaces. With his temporary spatial interventions, he reflects the social framework of art, its conditions of production and representation. The production of art needs space, just as it also needs places of presentation. Tavella calls the concept for the wooden installations "temporary contemporary". In doing so, he introduces not only the concept of space but also that of time into his art. These sculptures are temporary sculptures, are sustainable in an ecological sense because they can be brought back into the forest as branches coming from the immediate surroundings.
