Urs Fischer

b. 1973, Switzerland

Swiss installation artist, born 1973, active in New York City and Zurich

Urs Fischer (b. 1973, Zurich, Switzerland) lives and works in New York and Zurich. His practice traverses the fields of painting, sculpture and installation, as well as photography and drawing, in a multifaceted body of work that eludes formal or generic categorisation, coaxing comparisons with the multifarious practices of Martin Kippenberger, Franz West, Fischli & Weiss, and others. Fischer’s work simultaneously echoes the shifting moods of Dada, Pop Art and conceptualism; and he deploys a dizzying range of materials from food to mirrors to dirt in a production process that is both organic and experimental.
