  • A recent road trip took a detour to see Urs Fischer: ERROR at The Brant Foundation Art Study Center in Greenwich, Connecticut. Open for ten years this is the first solo exhibition they’ve put on and it showcases an eclectic array of works by the Swiss-born Fischer who is now based in New York from Brant’s collections. Sculptures cast in aluminum or life-sized wax “candles” that will burn down by the end of the show. His famous “Bread House” which constructs a Swiss hut out bread and was the favorite of my daughter who I’d hijacked to come with me, and self-portraits and landscape “paintings” created by digitals scans or on an iPad. The process as interesting as the final work. How to describe it all...Confounding? Surreal?  Unpredictable? Let me know what words come to your mind. See the Foundation website to sign up for a tour time and if you do make a visit they also offer yoga on the lawn by the polo fields - I may go back just for that! @thebrantfoundation @ursfischer #brantfoundation #ursfischer #breadhouse #artinconnecticut #contemporarysurrealism #visualartwork

  • Gagosian Gallery at Art Basel, always had a large buzzing crowd in its booth today.

It was my first time visiting Art Basel. Quite overwhelming with so much high quality artists to see! You really need longer than a day, I ran out of time to see everything.

  • Urs Fischer: PLAY
April 25–June 15, 2019
925 N Orange Drive
An experience with Urs Fischer’s PLAY is not an encounter with inert objects, but a dance with capricious partners. Nine office chairs of differing colors and with mercurial personalities zoom around a gallery, each inviting the viewer into an impenetrable pas de deux. Perhaps it is even incorrect to use the word “viewer” – when interacting with Fischer’s coterie of office furniture, the gallery-goer assumes an active role not often found in white cubes.
The chairs, constructed masses of wires and sensors, are equipped with a functioning AI that determines and learns from each encounter they have. As the exhibition progresses, their actions will become more and more refined until they eventually become so graceful that their artificial origin can be obscured. PLAY is a technologically advanced work, yet it is one that seeks to transcend the novelty of its creation. As Fischer affirms, “despite the complexity of the parts, the exhibition as a whole is pretty simple. It’s about what you, the viewer, project onto it. It’s not about chairs, it’s about humans.”
Fischer seeks to create sculpture through interaction. While the chairs are the most visible part of PLAY, the work unfolds through exchange, expectation, and frustration. As you stand in the gallery, a chair might approach timidly or full of boisterous energy and engage you in any number of actions. Yet, the chairs defy preconceived notions of how they should behave. As you expect one to veer to the left, it darts right and wheels off to the opposite side of the room, abruptly dismissing any patterns that you may try to apply. These moments of entropy lie at the heart of the piece, confounding the observer and bestowing a kind of agency upon the chairs, making them active participants in their own arena.
PLAY, conceived of by Urs Fischer with choreography by Madeline Hollander, opens on April 25th and runs through June 15th. @jeffreydeitchgallery @urs.fischer #ursfischer #losangeles #jeffreydeitch

  • Mood courtesy of Urs Fischer’s ‘Undigested Sunset’, 2001-2002.

Unifying Urs Fischer’s varied artistic output is the depiction and measurement of time as a medium. Often introduced through the incorporation of materials that have an expiration date, time for Fischer is expressed in the perishing remnants of food or the slow melting of wax. In the present work, it is manifested in the skeleton and seemingly burned hand, evoking imagery that has been used since the 17th century as motifs warning against the decadence found in ‘vanitas’ and ‘memento mori,’ where death, fear and horror are portrayed in contrast to the joy of living.

Browse our June 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening and Day Sales. Our London galleries will be filled with works by iconic artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Allen Jones, KAWS and more. Mark your calendars, our view is open 18-26 June ahead of our 27-28 June auctions. Learn more via link bio.

  • French luxury brand @louisvuitton tapped six modern artists to reinterpret their signature #Capucines bag. #SamFalls, #UrsFischer, #NicholasHlobo, #AlexIsrael, #TschabalalaSelf, and #JonasWood showcased their unique talents and creativity in an artsy Capucines collection called “ArtyCapucines”. Each model, revealing the artisanal savoir-faire of the maison’s ateliers, is released in a limited and numbered edition of 300. Named after Rue des Capucines, the Parisian street on which the very first Louis Vuitton store opened in 1854, the Capucines bag has quickly become a modern classic since its launch in 2013. Find out more the limited edition bags on prestigeonline.com/id. Tap the link in bio. ⠀⠀

  • Urs Fischer’s exhibition “Error” currently on view @thebrantfoundation. “I like the idea of error. I think it’s just a beautiful word. Anything we do successfully in life is an error or potential error. Art ultimately takes the risk of becoming an error; they could all be failures.” – Urs Fischer
