From Thomas Bayrle‘s 2012 Air de Paris solo exhibition:

Thomas BAYRLE has always cited his time working in a weaving plant as the formal trigger for his practice as an artist. For him the traceries of thread and the assembly line motif tie in with mass communication, the industrialisation of Europe in the 1960s and the similar process China is now undergoing. The threads have become freeway networks and the motifs are shaped by an accumulation of distinct elements; but the whole is always present in the part, the driving force being a full-time, dizzyingly kaleidoscopic similarity of form.

A seminal figure on the German art scene, Thomas Bayrle has been exhibiting around the world since the 1960s, notably at Documenta III and IV. Recently MACBA in Barcelona, MAMCO in Geneva and Museum Ludwig in Cologne have organised solo showings of his work (2008, 2009). He also exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2009.
