Urs Fischer

 
Trained as a photographer, Urs Fischer (*1973, Zurich) works primarily in the classic media of drawing, sculpture, and painting. Using all possible ordinary materials, Fischer creates non-hierarchical collages of objects and thoughts, high and low aesthetics, mundane and artistic memories, and personal and political interrogation.
He has held solo shows at the ICA in London (2000), the Stedeljik Bureau in Amsterdam (2000), the Kunsthas Glarus (2000), and the Santa Monica Museum of Art (2003). He exhibits regularly at Galerie Presenhuber in Zurich, Sadie Coles HQ in London, and Gavin Brown's Enterprise in New York. In 2004 he had a solo exhibition at the Centre George Pompidou in Paris. The catalog Good smell / Make-up tree was published on this occasion.
