Urs Fischer is interested in everyday objects in our environment. Organic and experimental, his production method explores the processes of construction and destruction (including melting). A curious all-rounder, Fischer uses multiple materials in his (sur)realist works, always with the aim of discovering and confronting new aspects of reality by presenting the viewer with contrasts and juxtapositions.
Part of the Pinault Collection, this work was first presented at the Palazzo Grassi at the "Le Monde vous appartient" (“The World Belongs to You”) exhibition (2011-2012).
