Urs Fischer: Bruno & Yoyo
Essay by Joachim Pissarro; copublished with Vito Schnabel Gallery
Bruno & Yoyo documents the inaugural exhibition at Vito Schnabel Gallery in St. Moritz, Switzerland, which centers around Urs Fischer’s eponymous sculpture of gallerist and art collector Bruno Bischofberger and his wife Yoyo. Cast in wax with wicks, the psychedelically colored life-size sculpture functions as a candle that melts down over the course of the exhibition. The book features an essay by Joachim Pissarro that delves into the social networks that tie the artist, his subjects, and the gallerist together as well as explores the history of wax sculptures and recurring themes within Fischer’s work.
