Toby Ziegler: There’s a Ghost in my House

Galerie Max Hetzler / Paris / Art

After study at Central St. Martin’s, Toby Ziegler began to feel blocked. “This idea of a gesture being a form of self-expression felt like such a loaded cliché.” So he decided to remove “gesture” from the process.

The final product is a far remove that suggests another realm of expression. —E.C.
