Urs Fischer at Legion of Honor



With more than thirty works, The Public & the Private offers a unique opportunity to appreciate Fischer’s transformation of iconographic traditions in the context of a historic collection. Urs Fischer’s sculptures and paintings explore the tension between the material and the digital, object and image. Drawing on Western art history and popular culture, he continuously tweaks the techniques and modalities underlying the creation and consumption of artworks. Fischer has an innate ability to play with the mechanisms of perception to challenge people’s awareness of the physical and ideological contexts of their surroundings. Mining image traditions and artistic materials to introduce ideas of time and transience, his installations often have the character of an uncanny and fleeting illusion. In conjunction with the exhibition Auguste Rodin: The Centenary Installation, the Legion of Honor has invited Fischer to bring a contemporary perspective to our understanding and appreciation of the Museums’ permanent collection, specifically the acclaimed collection of Rodin sculptures.
