Urs Fischer

Published by Kiito-San
Text by Jessica Morgan, Ulrich Lehmann.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Urs Fischer</I>.Urs Fischer provides an overview of the Swiss artistís heterogeneous oeuvre and features many of his best-known works. Designed and conceived by Fischer, the book is arranged thematically rather than chronologically, with clusters of works that allow the reader to observe how Fischer has explored disparate formal strategies to engage with his multifarious interests--which include gravity, architecture, shadows, representation, destruction, entropy and time--and revisit favorite motifs, such as furniture, fruit, animals, skeletons and other surrogates for his cardinal subject, the human body, over the past decade and a half. Produced for his retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, this hefty volume includes essays by Jessica Morgan and Ulrich Lehmann that unpack the dominant thematics in Fischerís work and examine the significance of the materials and production techniques in his sculptural practice.

Urs FischerFeatured image - Urs Fischer's "Untitled (Lamp / Bear)" (2005Ė2006) installed at the home of Amalia Dayan and Adam Lindemann in Montauk, New York, in 2009 - is reproduced from Urs Fischer, published by Kiito-San for the artist's current 65,000 square foot, 2-venue retrospective at LA MOCA, on view through August 19. Weighing in at 650 pages, this heavily illustrated brick of a monograph is the definitive publication on this ambitious Swiss pop-surrealist, whose work has never before been surveyed by an American museum. continue to blog
