Urs Fischer

Sep 24, 2013


The works of Swiss-born artist Urs Fischer have been shown in museums in galleries worldwide. It’s not long ago that MOCA Los Angeles hold a major exhibition weaving together some of Fischer’s most memorable and iconic sculptural works. Now, Gagosian Gallery presents the first exhibition of Urs Fischer’s work in Rome.

Fischer’s large-scale installations and sculptures posit genres traditionally evoked in painting—portraits, landscapes, nudes, and still lifes—in a profusion of rich, often impermanent sculptural materials. Whether utilizing comestibles such as bread or fruit, or other delicate substances such as candle wax, Fischer mines the literal and metaphorical potential of materials to introduce a fourth dimension—time—into the work.
