Urs Fischer Exhibition Catalog
By Jeffrey Deitch, Jessica Morgan and Ulrich Lehmann
Published to accompany Urs Fischer's solo exhibition April 2013 - August 2013 at MOCA at Grand Avenue and Geffen Contemporary.
Urs Fischer provides an overview of the Swiss artist’s 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.
