Tobias Putrih’s practice frequently deals with artworks as proposals, maquettes, or models from existing architecture designs and ideas. Inspired by the likes of Buckminster Fuller, Friedrich Kielser and Yona Friedman, the artist’s materially ephemeral projects engage with twentieth century utopian and visionary concepts of design and architecture, realising makeshift architectural models of public spaces such as cinemas, libraries and galleries. Putrih’s temporary environments are made of ubiquitous, disposable and industrially manufactured materials, such as MDF, cardboard, paper, monofilaments, styrofoam and scaffolding. Putrih also adopts the use of intangible materials such as soap bubble membranes, light and shadow to explore the perimeters of design, architecture and sculpture. He employs these fractured forms as well as changes in floor levels and illumination to create a narrative pathway, often immersing his audience within the interiors of his sculptural installations.
