We’re super proud and excited to announce that our Supergabe for 2021/2022 was created by Tobias Spichtig. Widely known for his work across painting, sculpture and installation, Tobias Spichtig has exhibited at the Swiss Institute in New York, the CAC-La synagogue de Delme and the Museum Folkwang in Essen among other international institutions. In 2019, his Ghosts sculptures were presented in BALENCIAGA flagship stores around the world.
Being deeply influenced by the environment in which each piece is created in, Tobias Spichtig’s work captures timeless moments that we create instant and intimate connections with.

About the edition

This edition is a C-Print and linoleum print on glossy paper (all works are unique), in which Tobias Spichtig references his boot motif Die Stiefel der Nachbarin, 2019.

“These are boots hanging from a coat hanger of a friend of mine. Her collection also inspired the first sunglasses paintings, […]. The boots looked like they’d walk over you when I took the picture. We were neighbors at the time and she had an amazing collection of garments which I found very inspiring. So the title is Die Stiefel der Nachbarin.”
