Description

Peter Fischli (born 1952) and David Weiss (1946-2012) are celebrated around the world for their multidisciplinary projects, films, sculptures and books. The two artists began producing their Polyurethane Objects in 1982, and continued until Weiss tragically died in 2012 from cancer. Hand-carved and hand-painted, these sculptural works overturn the notion of the readymade while uncovering wit and poetry in everyday things. Edited and sequenced by Fischli himself, the book features 140 objects, depicting such humble and seemingly inauspicious items as power tools, shipping pallets, stained paintbrushes and buckets. The foldout cover depicts the sculptures as they are exhibited, in arrangements that evoke the distinctive disarray of an artist’s studio.
