Urs Fischer is an installation artist and sculptor with big ideas.
Today I'm focusing on his big and scary installation artwork. In my mind's eye his work is quite cinematic, the concave beaten wall looks like a monster is about to burst through whilst the hole looks like a trench or a IED has exploded in the middle of a gallery. Instead of being inward looking and creating a thing, Fischer looks outward to his environment.
Fischer gained my attention when his sculpture of a giant teddy bear is expected to fetch $10 million at auction next month, it is quite a sight to behold, story and image: here.
Unfortunately Urs doesn't have an official site but.....
