  • Catalogue Essay

    The artists share a heritage that goes back to Marcel Duchamp and the Dada movement of the early 20th century, expanding on the notion of the readymade as objet d’art to include well-crafted replications of everyday objects, artfully carved in polyurethane and hand-painted. Often using found objects and existing materials, Fischli and Weiss are not content to merely question the definition of art; they fracture our sense of security among the familiar objects of our world by subverting their functions and investing them with new life and meaning.
