About this title

Synopsis:

The American artist Alexander Calder (1898–1976) and Swiss artists Peter Fischli (born 1952) and David Weiss (1946–2012) have all sought and found quintessential ways of rendering a moment of fragile balance in art--a temporary state at once precarious and propitious. With Calder’s groundbreaking invention of the mobile in the early 1930s, and Fischli/Weiss’s collaborative creative work from 1979 onwards, these artists each lent the theme of fragile balance an iconic form of a very different kind.
At first glance, both positions could hardly be more different; later, however, they proved to be two sides of the same coin, the result of different perspectives on the same theme at different times. This elaborately designed, richly illustrated catalogue with accompanying essays provides insight into both oeuvres.

About the Author:

Peter Fischli and David Weiss were both born in Zurich, Switzerland--Fischli in 1952 and Weiss in 1946. They began to work collaboratively in 1979, and had their first solo exhibition in 1981 at the Galerie Balkon in Geneva. Solo exhibitions of their work have been organized by the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, among others. They represented Switzerland in both the 1995 and 2003 Venice Biennales, winning the Golden Lion award in 2003, and were included in the 1987 and 1997 Documentas. They live and work in Zurich.
