Artists share works they’ve kept hidden away until now. This section is inspired by Hans Peter Feldmann, who once, on the occasion of an exhibition, asked Fischli&Weiss to send him images of works that they had never intended to publicly show

BY TOBIAS KASPAR

Tobias Kaspar (1984) is an artist based in Berlin. His artistic practice is defined by a strong interest in how image, text, form and content relate to each other, and his works constitute an ongoing investigation of the semantic connotations of images and objects. Many of his pieces encompass a dense set of references, ranging from contemporary lifestyles and pop culture to the artistic practices of Institutional Critique. Last year he created the 20122TK1JEANS Edition, a line of ready-to-wear blue jeans. He is currently working on a project that draws on Sofia Coppola's upcoming film The Bling Ring (2013) which will premiere this year at Cannes. Based on actual events, The Bling Ring depicts a group of fame-obsessed teenagers who use the Internet to track celebrities' whereabouts and rob their homes.
The images Kaspar selected for Feldmann Pictures are not part of this upcoming project, but they do share with it a similar imaginary, and an analogous enquiry into certain forms of desire, economies of visibility and practices of representation and marketing.
