about this work

Self-Seduction, 2004 was produced as an edition of 289 works on paper, originally designed to cover a wall in Tobias Rehberger’s studio. The ‘wallpaper’, which formulates a deceptively innocent pattern, is in fact created from endoscopic images of the artist’s own internal organs. Rehberger often plays with the viewer’s ideas and expectations in order to challenge preconceptions and routine ‘thinking habits’.
