Urs Fischer’s Hauntingly Playful Installations

Urs Fischer’s sculpture and installation work evokes a whimsicality with dark undertones. Much of his work features recontextualized or manipulated objects that are reminiscent of something out of of a Dr. Seuss book. His more well-known work features sculptures of wax figures with a wick that burns, slowly melting his sculptures throughout the exhibition. All that’s left of these is a pile of melted wax on the gallery floor. All of his work humorously addresses an idea of playful malleability and transformation, but also suggests a subtle grimness.
