YES by Urs Fischer

Bound in a tête-bêche format as a reversible book with two front covers, Urs Fischer: Yes documents two iterations of the ongoing collaborative project of the same name orchestrated by Urs, which has brought together thousands of collaborators from all walks of life-schoolchildren and adults, artists and amateurs-to make objects out of clay. Yes has populated numerous locations with clay figures, including the warehouse-like space of the Geffen Contemporary at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the sun-washed terrain surrounding the Deste Foundation's project space in a former slaughterhouse on the Greek island of Hydra. In this volume, installation photographs from both locations capture what entropy adds to the project: the unfired clay sculptures disintegrate over time, creating continuously changing landscapes of fragmented, crumbling forms.

Each book is signed and contains a unique drawing by Urs Fischer- please specify which number you would like!
