“I like the idea of error. I think it’s just a beautiful word. Anything we do successfully in life is a potential error.” – Urs Fischer
Join the Carriage Barn arts Center for a visit to URS FISCHER: ERROR, a solo exhibition at The Brant Foundation (Greenwich) of works by Fischer from the last two decades. Featuring some of the artist’s most notable large-scale sculptures and paintings from the Brant Collections, ERROR celebrates The Brant Foundation’s 10th anniversary at its Greenwich space.
In Fischer’s works, the meaning lies within the very substances and processes of its making, whereby ideas become material and materials take on a life of their own. Sculptures are created through an elaborate aluminum 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.
Tour will last approximately one hour. Register below and meet us at The Brant Foundation (951 North Street, Greenwich) at 10:50am.
