Urs Fischer

Madame Fisscher

Bringing together more than 30 works from numerous international collections spanning almost two decades of genre-crossing production, Madame Fisscher, Urs Fischer’s solo exhibition at Palazzo Grassi in Venice in 2012, presents an overview of the artist’s career from the late 1990s to the present day.

The exhibition is populated by meticulous reconstructions of familiar objects that seemingly defy gravity – live nude models, a half-dog whose tail wags like a metronome, wax figures whose forms melt over time, a levitating birthday cake, and a sprawling installation that escapes the confines of the galleries to infiltrate the public spaces of the city.

All of this offers an opportunity to examine Fischer’s continuous search for new sculptural solutions, in which the artist’s material investigations are imbued with a poignant temporal dimension and a biting sense of humour.
