Urs Fischer



The Modern Institute presents an exhibition of new work by Urs Fischer, spanning across the Aird’s Lane gallery space and adjacent Bricks Space.

Fischer’s multi-faceted practice explores and extends the possibilities of sculpture, painting and image production. Drawing on Western art history and popular culture, he continuously re-adjusts the techniques and processes underlying the creation of artworks and the ways in which they are received.

His twist on ‘the real’ resonates with movements such as Pop, Dada and Surrealism, all of which similarly toyed with the found image and the everyday object to create new and unanticipated combinations. Building ideas of time, process and transience into his works, his installations often create uncanny and illusory environments.
