Urs Fischer: Oscar the Grouch


In this catalogue for Urs Fischer’s 2010 solo exhibition at The Brant Foundation Art Study Center in Greenwich, Connecticut, a cast aluminum grave pierces a ceiling, the exhibition space becomes an excavation site, and, in a gallery wallpapered with a trompe l’oeil reproduction of his living room featuring artworks from his extensive private collection, wax figures of collector Peter Brant have been set alight and slowly melt away, dissolving into puddles. Through his audacious formal investigations of scale and material, Fischer creates an off-kilter installation that disconcerts and entrances.
