DescriptionSwiss artist Urs Fischer is best known for his dramatic transfiguration of the exhibition space, as well as for his unexpected transformations of quotidian objects. Offering grand gestures with a pop attitude, the artist works in a variety of media--which is grounded in sculpture despite the artist's training as a photographer--to explore the intersection between art and everyday life. Part of the new 2000 Words series, conceived and commissioned by Massimiliano Gioni and published by the Deste Foundation, this colorful monograph, with an essay by Jessica Morgan, presents the wide array of Urs Fischer's work in the Dakis Joannou Collection.
