Urs Fischer Art Installations

13 Feb

These mind-blowing installations by Urs Fischer are reminiscent of Dadaism, à la Marcel Duchamp, at least to me. Urs Fischer coincidentally is from Zurich Switzerland, where Dadaism originated from.

Installations are particularly tricky. I’m all for a big of Dada in our otherwise traditionally inspired art world, but the readymades were fresh when offered to the fore. And whimsical. Some of the examples here are interesting – but then we’re quickly at “so what,” in my opinion.

I still think the conceptual needs to be married to a successful visual to touch something. To be “art.” But then it’s all subjective, which is part of the pleasure – and difficulty.

I agree. Your comment sparked me to post this article. http://gilbertmusings.wordpress.com/2010/02/13/art-i-dont-understand/ I had original posted it on my Tumblr a few weeks ago.
