Published to accompany his 2013 solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, Urs Fischer provides an overview of the artist’s heterogeneous oeuvre and features many of his best-known works. Designed and conceived by the artist, 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 time. Essays by Jessica Morgan and Ulrich Lehmann that unpack the dominant thematics in Fischer’s work and examine the significance of the materials and production techniques in his sculptural practice.
