Urs Fischer’s art at MOCA, Los Angeles

June 27, 2013

Spread across MOCA Grand Avenue and The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art), Los Angeles, the first survey in the United States of the Swiss-born artist Urs Fischer weaves together some of his most memorable and iconic sculptural, and the pleasure that we derive from his sculpture and painting is based on our attraction to and simultaneous repulsion by the dreamlike appearances that he constructs.

Fischer’s work is characterized by an unending diversity of materials, strategies, concepts and images. Sculptures are created through an elaborate aluminium casting process, roughly hewn in wood, or cast in wax only to melt away during the run of the exhibition.

The artist delights in the possibilities of surface, but even works that suggest his handmade touch turn out to have been produced through a range of digital processes in order to create the oddly surreal appearance of reality gone wrong.
