  • Catalogue Essay

    In most cases, I don’t even think about the object, I think about a situation...what’s going on between elements in a work. Not compositionally, but almost politically, and defnitely structurally: a chair is never a piece of furniture for me, it is part of a situation that establishes a real clash in space. A situation means that things are forced to occupy a space together or alone.

    (Urs Fischer, quoted in Urs Fischer: Shovel in a Hole, New York, 2009, p. 63).
